Tree of Lights campaign 125 years strong

Posted:

Decatur - The holiday's are just around the corner and soon you will hear the sounds of bell ringers.

 

The Salvation Army kicked off their holiday donation campaign today. The Tree of Lights campaign is in it's 125th year collecting donations.

 

Hickory Point Mall in Forsyth hosted the kick off.

 

This year the Salvation Army hopes to raise 390-thousand dollars. The goal is a slightly higher this year. Salvation Army Corps Officer, Wes Dalberg explained it is because of a growing need in the central Illinois Community. "There's a lot more people that were anticipating needing help, anywhere from 10-15 percent more people coming for help. Unfortunately it looks like we're going to still have a high need in our through our doors this season community."

 

The campaign will run until December 24th.
