The Salvation Army needs "change to make change".

Crawford county neighbors are stepping up this weekend to help the Salvation Army save Christmas for families in need.

The thief's bad behavior inspired Jones to replace the stolen money with a $200 donation.

At The Salvation Army, the month of December is always one of excitement and worry.

There has been a "spike in demand" this year and they are looking for volunteers to help them out during the critical final week.

"Sharing is caring" and "Need knows no season", according to the Salvation Army sign located above the locked kettle, but some paid no heed to it or to the noise I was making with the bell.

"Even if you have a dollar, just a dollar, it will mean so much because dollars add up", Jones said.

In other parts of the country, donations to red kettle campaigns have declined.

"We do not support The Salvation Army or consider them our "partner" for this project, they simply linked us to a needy family", The Blaze quoted the shop's Facebook post as saying.

"My father started the process years ago in Knoxville he organized the Kiwanis Club to ring the bells and he set an example for me, my brother and my sister", he said.

"Without sufficient donations to the kettle campaign, I am concerned about our ability to meet the need for social services and continue providing the same level of service across the region", said Stephen Banfield, that division's commander. Gifts were purchased and brought back to the Credit Union where the Salvation Army could then pick up and distribute.
