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.”

Donations through December 31st will be doubled, up to a one-million-dollar “challenge match.” Visit
