Donations suffering because people don’t carry as much cash

Salvation Army hopes you bring your cash to help them reach their holiday goal

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Red Kettle donations aren’t what they used to be and Salvation Army officials say it’s because people don’t carry cash as much as they used to.

The Jackson-area Salvation Army has 58 kettles set up in the five county region.

The donation dilemma is more of a national issue than a problem for the local Salvation Army Chapter.

Major Robert Lyle says cash donations are stagnant year over year, but they’re not declining.

Last year, the chapter fell short of its $490,000 goal. This year’s goal is $500,000.
