Holiday donations slow this season

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Salvation Army says donations aren't coming in as fast as they normally do every year. Officials are making a call out to the public for donations such as canned goods to be placed in food bags for Thanksgiving. The Salvation Army provides these bags to the less fortunate every single year.

Development Coordinator April Manibusan told KUAM News, "The week before Thanksgiving we're pretty good. We're halfway through the number of food bags that we would be prepared to give out. But this year, it looks like with the donations we have so far, we only have about 50 bags. Our goal is to at least put out 500 bags to give out to families at the event."

If you want to drop-off donations, you can do so at the Salvation Army's Lighthouse Recovery Center in Tiyan. In the meantime, the Salvation Army will also be hosting a Thanksgiving feast next Thursday at the Chamorro Village in Hagatna.  You can also drop off toys and canned good at the KUAM Studios in Harmon from 9am-4pm.
