Salvation Short On Donations

The Salvation Army has crunched the numbers, and donations weren't as good as they hoped for this holiday season. Although food and clothing donations were up since last year, cash donations were down. This year was about $18,000 short of a typical holiday season.

Major Mark Satterlee of the Salvation Army says bell ringers had about a week's less time to raise money this year. "Our kettles are down about 19% from last year. Which, we don't really feel that now, but when it starts to warm up again in the spring, we're going to feel that financial pinch because of that drop in the kettles," says Satterlee.

Major Satterlee says mail-in donations were up. If you want to donate cash, clothes or food to the Salvation Army, you can call (806) 765-9434.
