Drive Through & Support Those in Need at The Salvation Army Red Kettle Blitz

St. Louis, Mo. – No need to brave the cold to support those in need in our community. The Salvation Army is holding a drive through Red Kettle Blitz on Wednesday, January 10 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Almost 45% of all Saint Louis Metropolitan area households do not have income to meet basic needs, according to a recent United Way study. The Salvation Army provides for basic survival needs and longer term solutions for our neighbors in need. The Salvation Army is short of reaching the campaign goal which can negatively impact the number of people they will be able to assist this year.

Volunteers will be accepting monetary donations at three area St. Louis locations.

Lt. Colonel Dan Jennings, The Salvation Army Bi-State Executive, says “This community has been very generous this year in supporting those affected in other areas of the country through their disaster donations. We hope that they will consider and additional amount to continue the service to those in this community as well.” Funds raised during the Tree of Lights campaign support local programs and services. The Tree of Lights campaign represents approximately 45 percent of The Salvation Army’s year-round operating budget. The campaign ends January 31, 2018.

Donations can also be made by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY, online at: stlsalvationarmy.org or text TREEOFLIGHTS TO 41444.
