The need to help others in our local Ozarks' community is greater than ever before, which makes this year's Tree of Lights Christmas Campaign more important than ever before.
Each year during the Tree of Lights Christmas Campaign, The Salvation Army seeks vital funds and donations from the community that will allow the organization to provide critically needed local programs and services to thousands of Ozarks residents throughout the entire year.
"We raise these funds because each day there are families and children who need our feeding programs and emergency food pantry. We raise these funds because each day our shelter and housing programs are almost always at capacity," Major Norman Grainger, Ozark Area Coordinator, said. "We raise these funds because we need community support to help the thousands of Ozarks residents who turn to us everyday because they have absolutely nowhere else to go."
In addition to making a financial contribution, there are many other ways to support the Tree of Lights Christmas Campaign! Hundreds and hundreds of volunteers will be needed throughout November & December ... sign-up to volunteer today!
