Ottawa charities seeing donations dwindle this Christmas

Mystery donor again drops gold pesos into Salvation Army's Red Kettle

Among the services that depend upon the annual Red Kettle campaign include a food panty that provides grocery assistance.

But, whether their goal is met or not, volunteers like Anna say they will continue to do their part encouraging others to help brighten the holidays for someone less fortunate.

The Salvation Army had used a former auto dealership site on Peters Creek Parkway for years to sort donations and as its hub for its Christmas giveaway to children.

The Salvation Army is in full swing with the Red Kettle Campaign at all partner locations across Genesee County and needs community support to assist families during the coming year.

This year, donations in the Concord area are running about 10 percent behind.

As CBS2's Carolyn Gusoff reported, donated toys are stuffed into a Salvation Army space in Suffolk County - each matched to a child with a Christmas wish. In the past, the Salvation Army would go through the process of buying and packing a ham, turkey, potatoes and all of the fixings needed for a Christmas dinner and hand out hampers.

There are many ways The Salvation Army is working to fill in the gaps for our friends and neighbors in need, not just during the Christmas Season but all year-round. "All of that money will go toward helping the Salvation Army and the Angel Tree", said Phillips. "So that's the kind of numbers we're talking about", Michels said, adding that in 2016 both eastern and western Jamaica made approximately $17.7 million. "We've never had some people at some locations because we haven't had enough volunteers", said Pilgrim. No doubt, it takes a special person to stand outside in the cold to ring that bell, knowing you'll probably receive far more cold shoulders from harried shoppers than deposits of dollars and cents.

With Christmas creeping closer and closer, the Salvation Army in London is in dire need of donations for the city's youngest children.

The warehouse at 901 Trade St. has about 19,000 square feet, and the Salvation Army is using about half of that space.
