The Quincy Salvation Army Christmas Campaign Chairs, Roy and Trisha Webb, have announced the completion of a successful 2017 Christmas Campaign. The Quincy campaign goal of $400,000 was exceeded with a total raised of $402,724.

The Tree of Lights Christmas Campaign is The Salvation Army’s major fund raising effort each year. Money raised during the campaign helps provide Christmas assistance as well as funding programs and services that assist individuals and families in the greater Adams, Brown , and Pike County areas on a daily basis throughout the entire year.

The need for assistance to the people of the Quincy area community is a constant, which The Salvation Army takes very seriously, especially during this campaign.

This holiday season, the following assistance was given in the Quincy service area: 700 Christmas food boxes were distributed to families. 775 children received 4,451 toys from Toy Town. 520 meals were served on Thanksgiving, and 365 meals were served on Christmas Day.

The Salvation Army is grateful to the 2,134 volunteers who donated 4,437 hours of volunteer service to help make all of this possible.

The Salvation Army appreciates the many individuals, groups, organizations, and businesses that supported our effort by donating food, toys, time and money to make the 2017 Christmas Campaign a success.
