The Knox County Salvation Army is starting its Christmas campaign a bit earlier this year. The “Rescue Christmas” fundraising campaign is a statewide effort from the Salvation Army, and involves all of its individual locations across Indiana.
State Salvation Army officials served around 68-thousand people last year. According to their estimate, that number could rise to 108-thousand people, due to problems from the pandemic.
Along with increasing demand, Salvation Army officials expect decreased donations. The expected decrease is from fewer people carrying cash, a closure of retail areas, and a decline in foot traffic.
Salvation Army officials urge Christmas giving starting now—through digital or online giving, through your Alexa system, by texting HOOSIER to 24365, and with the group’s Angel Tree program.
