Excel Exceeds Red Kettle Goal 

The Salvation Army of Pekin set a goal to raise $200K during their 2017 Red Kettle Campaign. Over the course of six Saturdays during the holiday season, Excel employees volunteered to ring bells for the campaign. The original goal was to fill 60 hours and to raise $1200. Excel employees and their family/friends managed to fill 56 hours and raised close to $3000 during this six-week campaign. On top of this, Excel agreed to match $2000 of the total amount raised. Altogether, Excel more than doubled its initial goal and raised close to $5000 for the Salvation Army of Pekin – that’s 2.5% of Pekin’s overall goal!
