GROSSE POINTE (WWJ) – The Salvation Army is asking for help after a red kettle was stolen from outside a Kroger store in Grosse Pointe.

Officials say the kettle was taken around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday from the grocery store on Mack Avenue. It’s not known how much money was in the kettle, but the Salvation Army says donations average about $500 per day, which is enough to feed a family of four for five weeks.

A description of the suspect has not been released.

The Red Kettle campaign runs through Dec. 31. The goal this year is to raise $7.8 million.

For those wishing to help The Salvation Army, tax-deductible donations can be made by:

· mailing a check or money order, made payable to The Salvation Army, 16130 Northland Drive, Southfield, MI 48075
