Salvation Army Struggling after Winter Storm

Fewer bell ringers means fewer dollars in the red kettles.
FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- The ice and snow isn't just impacting the roads, it's also taking its toll on holiday giving.

The Salvation Army is having to cut back on the number of bell ringers because of the winter weather, which means less money in the red kettles.

"We are anticipating that our costs during this month are going to be over $700,000; and without those kettles, without the donations coming in, we will have to find a way to pay for it someway," says Major N.J. Pope with NWA Salvation Army.

If you are wanting to help the Salvation Army in a different way other than the red kettle, this year's Fill the Truck campaign will be at Walmart stores across the state.
