SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — The Salvation Army of Sacramento says it is around $30,000 behind on its holiday season fundraising goal.
The nonprofit says fewer donations and a smaller window of time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is behind the shortage.
“Failing to meet our fundraising goal would mean potentially cutting back on the much-needed services that we provide,” Salvation Army Sacramento Officer Captain Emmanuel Masango said in a news release.
The group says the money raised by red kettle bell ringers is used year-round, not just around Christmas.
