Salvation Army Hoping for Strong Finish in Donations

Posted:

Decatur - The Salvation Army is hoping to finish the year with more donations.

 

Captain Wes Dalber, Corps Officer for the Salvation Army said "We have seen less in donations compared to last year.  We know the economy is not very good and the community supported those poor victims from the tornado in Washington last month, which may make it harder for people to support us this year."

 

The Salvation Army's Tree of Lights Campaign will run until December 24th. "Our bell ringers will be ringing from 10 am – 8 pm Monday – Saturday.  We have several individuals and groups signed up to volunteer to ring for us, but we could use many more," said Dave MacDonna, Director of Development and Communications. 

 

On December 13th and 14th the annual Annual Guns and Hoses competition will be in action between various police agencies and fire departments.  The two agencies will be ringing bells at Wal-Mart  and Sam's Club in Decatur.
