The Great Plains Health Foundation presented a $2,700 donation to the local Salvation Army chapter Thursday morning.

The Salvation Army says more than 800 meals were served past year.

Another main reason for the drop comes from customers increasingly shopping online rather than in stores, and although donations can be made to The Salvation Army online, it doesn't garner the attention or impact in-person bell-ringers do.

Bundled against the cold in a big red coat and blue ear muffs, the 80-year-old volunteer merrily greeted shoppers as they came and went. Williams said the goal is to raise $515,000 in Louisville and he think's they'll surpass it. We have been blessed by their support for some time, and with 1200 families and as many as 1800 individuals in need this holiday season, donations such as this are particularly welcome.

"For Randolph County this year we had 77 families, and out of those 77 families, there was a total of 95 angels", she said.

"Some of our individual kettles have increased, from an individual kettle base from a year ago", Hughes said.

"We want to thank all the organizations that helped us this year".

"Last year, we were so green at it that we didn't do a very good job", Paxton said. We don't get government money for some of our projects.

Last year, The Salvation Army provided over 2.4 million meals and helped almost half a million MA residents in need.
