A former Springfield Police Officer that was seriously wounded on duty earlier this year will co-chair the Salvation Army’s 2015 Tree of Light’s Campaign.

Aaron Pearson, along with his wife Amanda, will assist in raising community support and awareness for the agency.

Pearson was shot in the head while responding to a report of suspicious activity in the early morning hours of January 26. The family says they want to invest as much time and energy into helping the community that helped and supported them through his recovery.

Aaron and Amanda Pearson were married in June of 2010. They have a four year old son, Jackson, and a one year old daughter, Jovie.

The Salvation Army will announce its 2015 Tree of Lights Campaign goal and unveil an exhibit honoring its 125 years of service in Springfield at The History Museum on the Square Friday evening at 5:30 p.m.
