Quad Cities, USA:  The Salvation Army is pleased to announce that VON MAUR, the locally owned high-end department store, will sponsor the sixth annual Red Kettle Match Days this weekend.

On December 23rd and 24th, VON MAUR will make a dollar-for-dollar match up to $10,000 to Quad Cities red kettle donations at Northpark and Southpark Malls.  These locations include the two large red kettles inside of the malls.

Donations are needed to help meet this campaign’s goal of $815,000.  We are currently at $527,000 (64 percent) of that goal. The Salvation Army asks the community to take VON MAUR up on their challenge in order to maximize gifts made to The Salvation Army of the Quad Cities.

Major Gary Felton, Quad Cities Coordinator is “so pleased to partner again with such a notable and admired business in our community. The timing of this match weekend couldn’t be any better our Red Kettle Campaign and its short falls. We are hoping that this Von Maur Match weekend will help give the end of our Red Kettle Campaign the push that it needs.”

The Salvation Army of the Quad Cities encourages those who cannot make it to the malls on these two days, to send their checks in to 301 W 6th Street Davenport, IA 52803 with the word “Match Day” in the memo. This will ensure their donation gets counted toward the $10,000 match goal.
