The Salvation Army in Texarkana needs your help with their 'Red Kettle Campaign'.

With just ten days left before Christmas, The Salvation Army in Texarkana finds itself falling behind the red kettle goal for 2020. The annual Red Kettle Campaign is The Salvation Army’s primary fundraiser and raises essential funds to operate programs that make a difference in the lives of people year-round in Texarkana.

Major Czajkowski of The Salvation Army said:

“The 2020 bell-ringing season has brought unique challenges due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.” Fewer people shopping in person at stores has resulted in us falling significantly behind as we work toward our 2020 kettle goal. We have currently raised $31,578 and are praying the community will dig deep in the remaining days of the season to ensure we can continue to provide help to those who come to us for assistance. They often come to us at times of crisis when they have nowhere else to turn.”

The Salvation Army bells will continue to ring outside stores through Christmas Eve and the organization is optimistic that with the community’s support it can still reach its fundraising goal.
