Salvation Army Still Short on Goal
ELKHART COUNTY, IND. -- Now it's slogan is doing the most good, but in the midst of a sluggish season, The Salvation Army hopes to live up to that promise. Kettle donations are down in Michiana by thousands of dollars in places like Elkhart and that could mean turning down families in need.
The Salvation Army must raise $30,000 by Christmas time in order to reach their $450,000 goal. Last year their goal was $400,000, but they had to raise that goal, because their are more families in need this year.
"There are so many more families that we are seeing that are in need and if we don't raise that money we won't be able to help the families as much as we need to, because we will have to give less", said Elkhart Salvation Army Major Steven Woodard.
The Salvation Army is also looking for bell ringers, so if you can't donate your money, you can donate your time by calling (574)970-0088.
