Thank you for being willing to give to the 2014 Springfield ‘Spring Ring’ event! This special bellringing event was coordinated to help The Salvation Army recover much-needed funding for its Extreme Emergency Cold Weather Shelter, which assisted a record number of individuals this past winter. This life-saving assistance program helped more than 500 individuals by providing them with more than 3,800 nights of safe shelter and meals, as well as access to a variety of social services. But most importantly it’s The Salvation Army’s hope that each cold weather shelter guest knew that he or she was not forgotten, and that we as a community sincerely cared for their well-being.
Your gift will make a tremendous difference in allowing The Salvation Army to continue not only this particular life-saving program, but many other programs & services that help thousands of Ozarks’ residents every single day. Year-round available assistance includes an emergency food pantry, feeding and shelter programs, emergency social services, safe & affordable programs for children, and much more!
