St. Joseph Co., Ind. Salvation Army administrators are calling this season the most difficult Red Kettle Campaign they can remember.
It leaves the Salvation Army of St. Joseph County short more than $47,000.
Mail, online and texting campaigns came up short this year. In total, the organization is facing a $90,000 shortfall.
They're hoping that donors will continue to send in mail donations, which will be counted through the month of January.
If they don't earn enough, administrators say it could mean cutting services for as many as 500 Michiana families.
Major Bob Webster says, "We're here to help and we are always able to help because in the past we have always been able to meet the goal. Now we are faced with what to do. How do we say no to people when they come in?"
They're reminding folks that any tax deductible donations must be post marked by tomorrow.
