Carter said the programs that they offer are all funded through the Red Kettle drive, their biggest fundraiser, from the after-school program to the emergency food pantry.

"If our kettles aren't out with the volunteers, then we're not getting the money".

Locally, red kettles can be found at the following locations: Walmart; Hobby Lobby; Macs; Fred's; Stage; JC Penney's; Atwoods; Brookshire's; or Walgreens.

The Salvation Army-Fox Cities will give out donated gifts to thousands of local children this week. Suggs said there are around 2,000 employees (including on-site supplier workers) at the Blue Springs plant.

The release said the donation will boost fundraising efforts, which are running about 10 percent behind last season's numbers. "Kroger is putting a $1,000 check in the kettle". In addition, a total of 485 families will get gifts from members of the public who sponsored them through the Adopt-a-Family program. I think we exceeded that.

More than 700 families were slated to come to the bureau this year.

"Streator is a really giving community, so yes, I'm optimistic, but it's close", she said. Jeff Daniel, commander of the Tupelo Salvation Army post.
