The Salvation Army is making a plea for donations, specifically for turkeys. Not only can you volunteer at the Progress Building, but there are also spots open until December 23 to help man the organization's iconic traditional Christmas kettles.

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

The Salvation Army is in serious need of toy donations as part of its Angel Tree program for kids this Christmas.

"I believe that it's much better than it was previous year", Sturdivant said.

The Salvation Army is putting out the call for help.

"Even if you have a dollar, just a dollar, it will mean so much because dollars add up", Jones said. That is a daunting number, but it will allow us to provide far more than food and shelter to those in need in our community.

This year, more than 900 families registered for the program. Gifts were purchased and brought back to the Credit Union where the Salvation Army could then pick up and distribute.

Chloe Anderson, Rebecca Brawn and Clara Slater from Blackburn Salvation Army Band were invited to perform live on Blue Peter on Thursday night, in an event that saw young people from all over the country come together for a special Christmas Performance.

The money raised through the competition will be used locally to help meet the basic needs of those experiencing difficulties this holiday season. Right now, however, collections are down 10 percent from past year even though the goal is higher.
