12/19/2013 2:53:00 PM All Salvation Army donations doubled Friday and Saturday Historic $2 million matching opportunity spans Minn., N.D.
An unprecedented giving opportunity is coming: All donations made to The Salvation Army in Minnesota and North Dakota on Friday, Dec. 20 and Saturday, Dec. 21 will be doubled.
"The message is clear - any gift you give to The Salvation Army for two days will do double the good," said Lt. Col. Robert Thomson, Salvation Army commander for Minnesota and North Dakota. "Across the region donations are down 20 to 30 percent, but an outpouring of generosity now can turn things around in every country of both states. That means more lives will be impacted - Salvation Army services are vital to support those in need."
This is the largest two-day matching gift in Salvation Army history. It comes from a small group of anonymous donors who pooled $2 million worth of matching funds to get Salvation Army Christmas Campaigns back on track in Minnesota and North Dakota.
