Don Wessel Honda and The Salvation Army Advisory Board are challenging the community of Springfield on Saturday, December 3. For every $20 bill donated on December 3 through the annual Red Kettle fundraiser, Don Wessel Honda and The Salvation Army Advisory Board will donate $100.
“Our Red Kettle fundraiser is our largest fundraising event of the year.” Major Mike Mills, Corps Officer said. “The support we receive from community members during this event, like Don Wessel, ensures that our programs and services will be available to those in need next year.”
This Christmas the Salvation Army is seeking to raise $800,000.00 during the annual Tree of Lights Campaign. The money raised during the Christmas season funds programs and service year round. In addition to programs offered year round, this Christmas the Salvation Army anticipates it will help over 3,200 individuals with holiday assistance.
