If you've been to area grocery stores lately, you've probably seen the Salvation Army Bell Ringers out. Major Robert Keene with the Salvation Army says the need is greater than ever this holiday season, but giving is down. “We're a little behind last year. We’ve obviously could use more. We have 1700 families registered and we're a little bit behind bell ringing as far as income.” The original local Salvation Army goal was $85,000, but Major Keene says they probably won't make that. They hope to raise $73,000 this Christmas season, which is down about 12% from last year.
