Salvation Army sets fundraising record

Disaster training offered March 9

Whitestown — The Salvation Army of Boone County closed 2012 with a new record collection of $20,121 — an increase of $2,613 from 2011, when the last record was set.

Things have only been going up for the Salvation Army in recent years. The fundraising goal was $10,000 in 2010, and people said the organization would never reach it, said Richard Burdett, chairman of the organization’s advisory committee. But $13,900 came in that year.

In 2011, the goal was set at $15,000, “and they thought, ‘Wow, that’s aggressive,’” Burdett said. But around $17,500 was raised.

This year, another aggressive goal was set at $22,000.

“We were keeping pace with how the growth had gone,” Burdett said. “It’s a real success story.”
