Salvation Army a long way from reaching $78000 goal

The Salvation Army in Ottawa says it's not even one-third of the way toward its $700,000 Kettle Capaign goal this year

"We're right at $100,000", said Maj.

"We also see a lot of young ladies with children [and they are] not working". Donations can also be submitted on the website www.salvationarmyusa.org/usn/givebycheck through the end of the year to help meet the 2017 goal of $305,000.

They say in this year alone, there were 1,109 gifts donated for children in the Bowling Green area. Developed with the Royal Bank of Canada, the Salvation Army Kettle App can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Past year in MA, the Salvation Army provided more than 2.4 million meals, almost 200,000 nights of shelter, more than 67,000 days of child care, and 343,333 Christmas gifts for children.

She has reached out to different people in town, encouraging families to participate, but has so far been unsuccessful in finding the volunteers she needs. "I was a little concerned because of all the fires, and the hurricanes and the other things that have happened nationally, but our local community has been supportive of us this year, again".

"I've never seen that much help needed, especially last minute like this", Antoine said.

The Salvation Army is now 20 percent down in donations from 2016.

That means Friday and Saturday traffic and donations are crucial to the Salvation Army pulling in the remaining half of its goal in the next week.

Officials say they found gold coins among the donations in a Salvation Army kettle in Florida.

"When you get a list for a 4-year-old and they say 'pajamas, trousers socks, ' you think, 'Oh my gosh.' You just take it for granted that everyone has what they need, and that certainly isn't the case", said Tow of Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter. And for every dollar donated to the Salvation Army, 82 cents go to support those services in 5,000 communities nationwide.
