Salvation Army losing money

Get those coins out: Donations for the Salvation Army's Red Kettle program in Arizona, New Mexico and southern Nevada are down this year.

This donation comes just days before the Red Kettle Campaign comes to a close.

"We are seeing less money this year, in part, because of the cold weather we've experienced", Morales said.

"Every contribution counts", said Quad City Salvation Army Administrator Major Gary Felton.

The Salvation Army donation kettles have become a popular sight among most shoppers.

The Salvation Army in Manitowoc County was at only 50 percent of its Red Kettle Campaign goal for 2016 before the donation. Acosta wanted to thank others as well for what turned out to be a Merry Christmas, "We want to thank everyone who has given to us, whether it's change or hundreds of dollars". The funds received during this annual campaign allow The Salvation Army to provide a wide range of programs and services throughout the year.

Health care signups nearing 6.5 million
An official with the investigation said that they "followed the instructions as given and we got in nine out of 10 times". Wisconsin's enrollment growth of almost 14 percent was higher than the national one of about 6.7 percent.

The Salvation Army of High Point packed bags full of toys, clothing and stockings to be delivered to more than 1,400 needy children and families on Tuesday.

"We're not going to make them stay out in bad weather", Griffin said of the Salvation Army's volunteers.

That number doesn't include online donations or those made at the kettles on Friday or Saturday stated Abby Mills, director of community and family services in a release Friday afternoon.

Salvation Army Red Kettle donations are down $200,000 in the St. Louis area compared to this time a year ago. "Christmas is about so much more than gifts, but for a child, having a surprise under the tree creates a sense of joy and wonder".

It's truly incredible to think that our teams have been able to assist almost 35,000 children here in our community over the past few years... "It's nice to see that this community recognizes the need and is there to step up and give".
