Salvation Army In Springfield Behind On Campaign Goal

Bristol Salvation Army thousands short of red kettle goal

The Salvation Army of Greenwood is projecting a $15,000 drop in donations to its Red Kettle Campaign this year.

The North Platte Salvation Army received a helping hand from two local organizations this week.

"The money is used to help people with utilities, rents, motel bills - anything that is an emergency", Paxton said. "It's how we fund it". "We got started earlier this year, getting publicity out for people to ring".

Clad in red trousers and a red apron sporting the Salvation Army logo, O'Mara was hard to miss with her bell and donation kettle, but it wasn't her attire people seemed to notice most. The agency's gym was full of toys for children 14 and under including stocking stuffers, games, crafts, books and even coats, gloves and scarves donated by the community, according to Major Mary Ann Wood with The Salvation Army.

"For Randolph County this year we had 77 families, and out of those 77 families, there was a total of 95 angels", she said. It gives the family a sense of hope and encouragement that they are not alone and that our community cares.

"I feel like I see them all over town but I think it's a good thing if you can just spare some change when you're walking by", said Claire Crowley.

Some towns where money has been toughest to come by for The Salvation Army include Malden, which is down 50 percent from the goal, followed by Lawrence, down 40 percent, Athol, down 30 percent and Plymouth, which is down 23 percent.
