Salvation Army Close to Holiday Goal

(Michigan City, IN) - The Salvation Army of Michigan City has nearly reached its 2022 holiday fund raising goal.


90-percent of the $220,000 goal has been raised through the red kettles placed out in the community until Christmas along with online and mail-in donations and sponsorship revenue. Major Rebecca Simmons said the funds raised during the holidays help serve local families during the season and throughout the year.


According to the Salvation Army, over 650 families this year received holiday assistance with food and toys. About 450 meals were distributed on Thanksgiving Day. 


The giving during the season also helps after the holidays with things like the food pantry, diaper bank, utility assistance and youth summer camp, officials said.


“All of the money raised through our Christmas Campaign stays here in Michigan City to meet the needs of people who are struggling with basic needs,” Simmons said. 


Simmons also gave thanks to bell ringers beside the kettles and other individuals who helped with the holiday fund raising.


“With the support of our community, we are able to help Michigan City families in their darkest hours, and help to restore hope that God, and their community loves them,” she said.
