Hannibal Salvation Army Exceeds Holiday Fundraising Goal
The Hannibal Salvation Army has exceeded its 2021 Christmas Campaign fundraising goal.
Campaign Chairs Justin and Brooke Gibson announced Monday the 2021 campaign raised over $124,000, topping the goal of $115,000.
The money raised during the Tree of Lights campaign goes toward providing funding for programs and services that help individuals and families in Hannibal and northeast Missouri throughout the year.
As part of the Monday's announcement, it was also shared that The Salvation Army of Hannibal this holiday season provided 800 food boxes containing a full Christmas meal to families and senior adults in Marion, Lewis, Monroe, Shelby and Pike counties.
The Salvation Army is also a partner in the annual Toys for Tots for Northeast Missouri drive, which this season distributed 8,730 toys to 1,221 children.
The Salvation Army is grateful to the 241 volunteers from the Hannibal area, who donated 505 hours of service to help make all this spreading of holiday cheer possible.
And, the Army appreciates the many individuals, groups, organizations and businesses that supported their efforts by donating food, toys, time and money to make the 2021 Christmas Campaign a success.
