Annual Toy Shop - Urgent Need

We are in desperate need of toys for the ages of 6 through 17, for our annual toy shop this Saturday. We are very short in the number of toys we currently have. Please consider purchasing a few toys before Saturday and help make a child happy this Christmas. You can drop off at The Salvation Army, Walmart, Monical's pizza, Menards, Dollar general and big R in Pekin. Washington locations are Monicals and Big R. In Morton you can help fill the truck at Walmart. Thank you for "Doing the Most Good" for those in need.

The Salvation Army Receives Generous Gift from Anonymous Donors
$8,000 to be used to Match Kettle Donations Next Two Weekends

December 10, 2014 – Donations in The Salvation Army's kettles in Pekin and Morton will be matched the next two weekends thanks to a generous gift from some anonymous donors. "Just this past Tuesday, we were looking at numbers for the campaign and realized we really have to have some great kettle days to meet our goal," said Captain Rick Ray. "And that very same afternoon, we received an $8,000 dollar donation. We asked the donors if we could use it as a kettle match and they said yes, so here we are," said Ray.

On the next two weekends, on Friday and Saturday, a donation in the red kettles will be
doubled! The matching means that the anonymous donors will be matching up to $8,000 raised in the kettles, to help The Salvation Army reach their goal this year. Read More...
