Salvation Army Didn't Make Holiday Ringer Goals


By KMVT News

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The Salvation Army bell ringers felt the effect of thanksgiving starting later than usual this year.

They estimated the late holiday caused them to begin 8 thousand
dollars in the hole.

Following the holiday season their tallies put them 12 thousand dollars off their goal.

While they were able to raise 97 thousand dollars, they are concerned about how they're going to fund programs throughout the year.

Captain Marcos Marquez, is relying on the community for some help.

"Were going to have to probably find a way to make it up, you know maybe someone in the community will be generous enough to try to make that up for us if not what we have to see where we can pinch and cut back a little bit."

They are planning on spreading the donations evenly throughout the different programs.

A plan is in the works to help make up for the 12 thousand dollar difference.
