Greene County Sheriff Jim Arnott and Springfield Police Chief Paul Williams are teaming up to make Christmas brighter by serving as the 2016 Salvation Army Tree of Lights Co-Chairs. As Co-Chairs for the 2016 Tree of Lights Campaign, Sheriff Arnott and Chief Williams will assist in raising community support and awareness for The Salvation Army, its programs, and services.
“Our community is fortunate in that hundreds of lives are touched by the Salvation Army’s much-needed services here in the Springfield area. My hope is that the 2016 campaign is the most successful one yet, and this will enable them to increase the number of our neighbors in need they are able to provide with assistance each year,” said Springfield Police Chief Paul Williams.
Sheriff Jim Arnott echoed Chief Williams saying, “The Salvation Army does so much for our community. It is traditional that we become aware of the need during the holiday season. What we don’t realize, is our community is dependent on The Salvation Army all year long. Together, let’s make this a record giving year. Join me in kicking off the red kettle season and make Christmas bright this year.”
Both Chief Williams and Sheriff Arnott are active members in their community. They look forward to giving back to the community during this holiday season.
