Salvation Army, DSC fall short of campaign goals

Salvation Army, DSC fall short of campaign goals

The numbers are in from two local fundraising campaigns, with each falling just short of its goal.

CEO of Champaign's Developmental Services Center Dale Morrissey said the agency's Tree of Hope campaign brought in around $133,000.  That's just shy of the goal of $135,000.

Although, Morrissey said the gap won't mean immediate cuts.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson said the total for the annual fundraising campaign of the Salvation Army of Champaign County checked in at around $408,000.  That's short of the goal of $428,000.  The leader of the local Salvation Army could not be reached for comment on how the total will affect the agency's budgeting going forward.

Both organizations do remind you that donations are accepted year-round.
