The Salvation Army of Greater Lynchburg sees a drop in donations this season.
They finished the year raising $212,396, which was $37,604 short of their goal.
Captain Trey Jones said they had anticipated the shortfall because of the loss of ringing locations and changes in national agreements of where they can ring. However, the captain said they are thankful for the community’s support.
The Lynchburg Salvation Army has also seen a drop in general donations especially with stock gifts.
“The Lynchburg Salvation Army is committed to helping those who need us in the Greater Lynchburg area,” stated Capt. Jones. “Our community has always partnered with us to meet the need, and we are confident that God will continue to provide us with the means to help those around us moving forward.”
