PEORIA, Ill. -- There is just one week left to donate to the Peoria Salvation Army Tree of Lights campaign.

Thanks to two generous donors, campaign officials are hopeful they will reach their goal. On Friday, the Salvation Army announced two anonymous donors had agreed to match donations given to the campaign up to $5,000.

So far, the campaign has raised more than $1.4 million, but it needs more than $240,000 to reach its goal of $1,670,000.

Money raised from the campaign is used to fund the Salvation Army's programs throughout the year.

The campaign ends next Friday, to donate, call 309-655-7220.
