The Salvation Army has reached 75% of their 2017 Tree of Lights campaign goal. The campaign will end on January 31 so there is still time to make a contribution to the goal. In order to reach the $1,000,000.00 goal, The Salvation Army needs to raise and additional $250,000.00.
“It is imperative that we reach this goal by the end of January,” said Major Butch Frost, Corps Officer. “If we do not reach $1,000,000 by the end of January, we will have to take a hard look at our budget and make some very difficult decisions. We want to make sure we are able to operate our current programs at their current level. Reaching this goal will ensure this happens.”
