The Salvation Army is entering the last day of their annual red kettle campaign hundreds of thousands of dollars short of their goal.

The organization is more than half a million dollars short of their $1 million goal.

The drive is a major source of funding for the Army’s work helping those in need in Greene and Christian counties. The Salvation Army hosts youth programs throughout the year, houses homeless men at their Harbor House shelter, families at their Family Enrichment Shelter and provide food to the hungry of our area.

If you would like to give to help the Salvation Army march toward their goal, you have multiple options:

  1. Drop in cash, coins or checks in red kettles you’ll see around the area today.
  2. Give online:
  3. Text SGF to 41444 from a mobile device
  4. Drop off donations at 1707 West Chestnut Expressway, Springfield

Update 9:10 a.m. 12/24: The Salvation Army reports an updated total showing they are at 45%, or $450,000, of their $1 million goal.
