One thing the pandemic can't take away is the Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign. To help with that mission, one local couple matched every dollar of donations dropped into kettles across Evansville on Saturday, December 19, 2020.
That pushed the Salvation Army closer to the $200,000 mark for their season of ringing. 44News has learned the weekend match was met with an anomyous donation of $10,000. Reports also show The Salvation Army saw more than $40,000 in donations over the 3-days of December 18, 19 and 20th. Donations were collected from Walmarts in Evansville, Boonville, & Newburgh.
This year, The Salvation Army saw an outpouring of volunteers who stepped up in numerous activities that will benefit citizens of Boonville and the surrounding County.
