This is a pretty big number compared to what it was this time previous year. You can give to our online red kettle at: "Donations so far are down".

The deadline to drop off angel tree gifts was supposed to be tomorrow but the Salvation Army has extended it to December 14 in hopes that every child will be chosen.

This year, there were a lot of disasters including hurricanes and storms, and people generously donated to those causes, he said.

One of the problems, Vowinckel said, is finding enough volunteers.

He is hopeful that as Christmas gets closer, donations will pick up, and that has been the case in the past.

"Weather is also a factor". "Now there are so many requests that they can't honor them all, and many of those businesses support the community in other ways".

"We really want the community to get behind us and support this". She said it was a decision that was very easy for her to make.

Salvation Army donations are unusually low this year - about 13 percent off the pace - so the rare gold coin came just in time, Tracey Leong reports.

"We definitely need food items like those served at a Thanksgiving meal - vegetables but especially cranberry sauce, stuffing and boxed dessert mixes such as brownies".

There are trees in various locations including the New Castle Public Library and King's Restaurant that have a tag with a child's name on it, and his or her age and clothing size, Kiley said.

"My husband was on angel tree when he was a kid so we made a decision to give back and, instead of us buying each other gifts, we bought gifts for someone in need", said one woman.

"We'll be using all of these funds to support our programs that are with emergency assistance programs", says Salvation Army Captain Karl Dahlin.

"This is not about us blowing our own trumpet, this is about the children and we really need the community to support us and help make it special", she says. "You will be blessed by knowing that those who are less fortunate will be helped because of your generosity".
