The Salvation Army of Grant County is heading into the last week of its annual Christmas Campaign, which funds local Salvation Army programs and services throughout the year. The goal for this year’s Christmas Campaign is $137,000.
Though the iconic Red Kettles have been put away, The Salvation Army is still nearly $40,000 short of its overall Christmas Campaign goal, including kettles, direct mail, and online donations. You can help The Salvation Army by making your year-end gift by mailing or bringing in a check to The Salvation Army’s office – 359 N. Bradner Avenue, Marion, IN 46952, by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY, or by visiting SAMarion.org and giving online through our easy-to-use and secure donation form.
“As we close out 2016, we hope the community will give to support our work in 2017,” says Lieutenant Blake Fewell, corps officer at The Salvation Army’s Marion Corps Community Center. “We are currently at 70% of our goal, needing nearly $40,000 more to support us in 2017. We hope members of this community would consider making a tax-deductible year-end gift to The Salvation Army this week.”
Last year, through the generosity of Hoosiers, The Salvation Army of Grant County was able to help more than 8,795 people through its Ben Medows food pantry and provide more than 486 safe nights of shelter for those in need in our community. With your help, we will again be able to serve our neighbors in need in 2017.
