Quincy’s Salvation Army kicked off the holiday season Thursday with the Tree of Lights Christmas Campaign and it’s the biggest campaign goal to date.

The fundraising goal this year is $405,000. Major Andy Miller says the money raised provides around 30 to 40 percent of the funding year-round for different programs including the emergency shelter and the food pantry.

However, this year the goal is greater because the need is greater.

“I think there’s a lot of people who just find that they may be working minimum wage jobs and they’re barely able to make it so they have a choice of between food or a toy,” said Major Miller.

Along with the Tree of Lights Campaign underway, you will also start to see the red kettles around town starting Friday.
