Amarillo Salvation Army Falling Short Of Fundraising Goal

Salvation Army Bell Ringers Collect Funds For Charity

The Salvation Army is around 22% behind their holiday fundraising goal of $274,00.

There are several reasons for the shortfall.  With Thanksgiving falling five days later this year the Salvation Army lost those days to collect donations.  Additionally the extreme cold weather sees less donations coming in and in some cases the cancellation of bell ringers to protect them from the especially cold days.

A bright spot is the Angel Tree.  The tree was bare Sunday afternoon because all the angels have been adopted.

More than 600 panhandle children will have a better Christmas thanks to the Angel Tree program.

The Red Kettle campaign helps fill the gaps the Angel Tree does not and also helps to fund year round Salvation Army projects.

The Red Kettles will be out until Christmas Eve.
