2 days to go: Salvation Army $25K short of Red Kettle goal

2 days to go: Salvation Army $25K short of Red Kettle goal

That is because the Salvation Army's Christmas Family Feast is on Christmas Day.

The Salvation Army in Springfield says $350,000 is still needed to meet this year's Tree of Lights campaign goal.

A second subject remained in a dark-colored minivan, eventually backing into a parking stall near the store's front door on the west side of the building.

Funds raised during the campaign go to help those in need. "We do whatever we can to help people in emergencies". "We can't do this without volunteers, there is just no way", Stewart said. "The Department of Highways took four and Wilson Martino Dental took 10, so there is support there - we just need to get more".

"We feel truly blessed, we really do", she said.




Sadly, this is not the first time a passerby has waged violence against a Salvation Army bell ringer around the holidays.

This year, two valuable coins have been dropped so far - an 1882 Morgan silver dollar and a 1915 five-dollar Indian Head gold coin. "They are a blessing; I know it is for us".

The Salvation Army was founded in 1865 in London England and now serves in 128 countries around the world. Although they haven't been appraised yet, Hughes said together they could garner about $500.

Because Kmart was a hot spot for donations, Hughes said the bell-ringers started a week early this year to try and make up for the loss.

George says one of the biggest problems is that people aren't carrying around as much cash as they used to.
