One, local charity needs salvation before Christmas and they're hoping donations pick up in the remaining nine shopping days before Christmas. Last year the Salvation Army made $50,000 and they're hoping to eclipse that this year. But, kettle collections and toy donations have been slow. Major Les Walter says he hopes donations pour in before it's too late. Kettles will remain parked outside of various, are stores through Christmas Eve, but toy donations must be made by late Saturday afternoon. Toy Coordinator Nancy Landerman says they have 3,400 toys but they need 3,700. Unwrapped toys can be dropped off at the Salvation Army or Wal-Mart on Maple Avenue. Donations can be made at any one of the many red kettles set up around town.
