Mighty Wash to assist Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

A Lubbock business is stepping in to support the Salvation Army and hoping to close the gap in its loss of funds from this weekend's snow. The Salvation Army was forced to suspend bell ringing for its Red Kettle Campaign, causing a financial strain. 

A bell ringer will be located at the Mighty Wash located on 82nd and Milwaukee Saturday, Dec. 15. Mighty Wash will also match donations made.

"There's so many people that go through each Mighty Wash location that it just opens up another avenue for us to narrow that gap that we lost this weekend," Lt. David Beckham, with the Salvation Army, said. "So, it means everything to us in terms of meeting the need of the community. Not only as Christmas time, but throughout the year."

The campaign goal is $250,000  and the army reports it's off track by nine percent year to date.

The Salvation Army provides drug and alcohol rehab programs, emergency response, disaster relief and daily shelter and meals for homeless people in our area.
