Springfield, MO (December 01, 2012) – The Salvation Army urgently needs more volunteers today Saturday December 1 to help with the Cans Film Festival food drive. Hundreds of volunteers are needed today beginning at 3 pm at The Salvation Army's main location - 1707 W. Chestnut Expressway - to help sort & pack away all of the donated canned food received during the food drive.
To sign-up or for more information please call (417) 862-5509 ext. 144*.
The Cans Film Festival food drive is one of the local community's largest annual food drives and helps re-stock The Salvation Army's Emergency Food Pantry during a time when donations are needed most. Last year, the Ozarks community donated nearly 26,000 canned food items during this single-day event.
The Cans Film Festival is part of The Salvation Army's Tree of Lights Christmas Campaign. Currently, the community has helped The Salvation Army reach approximately 25% of its $1 million Tree of Lights fundraising goal, which is about 4% less than where donations were at this time last year.
