Red Kettle Drive Kick off


Decatur IL – The sounds of the holidays will soon be in the air outside several Decatur area retailers.


The Decatur Salvation Army kicked off their Red Kettle Fundraising Drive Friday afternoon at the Hickory Point Mall in Forsyth. The money collected during the Red Kettle Drive helps cover the costs of the Salvation Army's Christmas assistance programs.


Assistance programs are in high demand again this year. "From what we've seen of people recently coming to us for the first time never having to ask for help, I expect the need to be even greater this season than it has been in the past."


The Salvation Army of Springfield officially kicked off their annual tree of lights campaign on Thursday.
