Salvation Army falls short during donation season
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- The deep freeze this winter is putting the Salvation Army of St. Joseph County in a bind because of major shortfalls during their donation season.
The Salvation Army fell short of its goal by $50,000. They say that is money that could have gone to help low-income clients who needed to put food on their table and pay their heating bills.
Salvation Army reps have told ABC57 that a shorter bell-ringing period between Thanksgiving and Christmas along with extreme cold both played a role in keeping them from reaching their goal of $362,000.
