Fort Wayne Salvation Army hurting for donations

Fort Wayne Salvation Army hurting for donations

The goal this year is $130,000.

A quarter-ounce gold coin, worth about $300, was found November 29, in a Salvation Army kettle at Sandy's Donuts in downtown Fargo, the organization said earlier.

Major Abe Tamayo said there could be some significant consequences if the organization doesn't meet its goal.

"It's incredible", said Marcos Marquez with The Salvation Army, Portland Moore Street Corps.

Use your parkour skills to swiftly traverse the city, scavenging for weapons that will give you an edge over your opponents. Six players must harvest blood from the zombies riddling their area of play and they must do so quickly and efficiently.

"It's very important because there's a great need for people right now that are going through some hard times", said Norma Escobar, family services director with the Salvation Army of York.

Audrey Jenning, a Red Kettle bell ringer at South Belt Walmart, said donations at her kettle have been steady since she started about a week ago.

The Salvation Army IOW Homeless Service is supporting the Council by opening its doors to the homelessness from now until the end of March 2018 and the 2 organisations are asking any individuals, groups or businesses to join them in working in a volunteer capacity.

"A lot of the really fantastic things we got this morning were teen gifts, so gift cards, earbuds, iTunes, movie passes, sport equipment, everything we need for teens", said Patty Lou Bryant, communications coordinator for the non-profit. Having donated last year, Ms Stammers, one of the teachers from St. Andrew's, was keen to see if the school could donate at least the same amount this year and has been delighted with the response with donations including boxes of lego, jewellery kits, art sets and a range of other toys and useful gifts.
