KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Salvation Army of Kansas City says it could run up to $500,000 short on Christmas donations.

Leaders with the Salvation Army said the holiday season shortfall could have negative impacts the rest of the year.

“These donations are critically important,” Major David Harvey, division commander of the Kansas and Western Missouri division, said in a release Tuesday. “The work of the Salvation Army is most noticeable at Christmas time, however, our work continues year-round. Helping people in need 365 days a year requires a tremendous amount of money, and we’re asking the community to provide us with that assistance.”

Harvey said there are more than 200 donation kettles located across Kansas City. People are also able to donate at www.salarmymokan.org.
