The sounds of the season are ringing all over Southern Colorado. The Salvation Army kettle campaign is going full out through Christmas Eve.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -

The Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign has been hit by thieves. 

A spokesperson for the campaign says one of the red kettles was stolen from the Walmart on East Woodmen Road near Powers Boulevard Friday. 

The Salvation army said this is the second stolen red kettle in Colorado Springs this year. The first theft happened Nov. 30 at the Walmart on Razorback Road. 

Colorado Springs police are investigating both incidents. 

In addition to the thefts, the campaign said it is down $35,000 compared to this time last year. The goal is to raise $600,000.
