The Salvation Army says all of its Greater Minnesota locations are on target to meet end-of-year fundraising goals, except Albert Lea where they’re about seven thousand dollars behind. But it’s a different story in the Twin Cities, where donations are currently about 700 thousand dollars short. Spokesman Dan Furry contends the Salvation Army must be at full funding strength for 2021. “What we’re fearing is that next year, when the moratoriums for evictions expire, that there’s gonna be a rush of assistance for mortgage and rent and utility next year,” he says.
Donations through December 31st will be doubled, up to a one-million-dollar “challenge match.” Visit SalvationArmyNorth.org.
