The song “Silver Bells” was inspired by Salvation Army Bellringers, and this year, The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma Area Command is hoping the spirit of Christmas will inspire others to help us reach our goal this year.
Because of several rain days, The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma is currently almost $13,000 under what we raised this same time last year, and in order to meet this year’s goal of $464,000, we have to raise $22,000 each day until Dec. 23.
Why is it so important? Every dollar that goes into The Salvation Army Kettle today helps us feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, clothe the needy and provide hope all year long. On average, more than 160,000 Central Oklahomans turn to The Salvation Army for assistance with more than 3000,000 meals served.
That’s thanks to donations from donors like you.
Our big bane this year was the rain. Every rain day means a serious drop in donations, and this year had lots of rain days.
Please, when you see a bellringer standing out in the cold these next few days, please consider giving. Your dollar will help a stranger in need.
Merry Christmas to all!!!
