We’re just a week away from the official start to fall but one local organization is already looking ahead to the holiday season.

The Salvation Army in Vincennes is starting its holiday campaign.

It’s called Rescue Christmas.

The statewide initiative aims to help families in poverty this holiday season.

This year is made worse by the pandemic.

The Salvation Army says a monthly gift of $25 will help provide 19 meals per month for families.

To donate, you can visit the Salvation Army’s website or drop of a donation in person.
