Salvation Army in Branson surpasses their goal for the year by exceeding 108,000 dollars.
Linda McCormick is the Salvation Army Captain of Branson.
“[We were] overjoyed and humbled that God blessed us so mightily this Christmas season,” McCormick said. She said she thinks this is Branson Salvation Army’s first time to top their set goal.
McCormick added that COVID-19 made people realize need is still present. People have lost jobs and students still have class. She also said that people still donating throughout the pandemic shows how much people trust the Salvation Army with their money.
The money raised will be used for the Salvation Army Programs throughout the year.
