Salvation Army Donations Down

JAMESTOWN –¬†This is one of the busiest times of the year for The Salvation Army, but unfortunately, officials report that donations have been slow to come in.

So far, for the first quarter of collections, officials report they are running around seven percent behind in donations.

That translates to about $35,000.

The Salvation Army believes it’s for a few reasons. One of the biggest reasons is people are staying home to shop online rather than visiting brick and mortar stores.

If you would like to donate or help volunteer it is not too late.

The Red Kettle Campaign runs through Dec. 24.
