"It’s got to be the economy, when those who usually donate are seeking help"

Another local Salvation Army might have to extend its kettle drive to meet its goal. With just six days left, the Fergus Falls Daily Journal reports that local officials are considering putting the kettles out for another week past the Dec. 24 deadline. Go here to read more.

Maybe they need a miracle like what happened in Exton, PA where an Army veteran who remembered getting free coffee and doughnuts from the Salvation Army decades ago gave a $10,000 check to a dumbfounded bell-ringer.

But honestly, even if expensive coins were dropped in kettles across the country, there is still bad news brewing... I can feel it in my bones.
