Known for helping people in crisis, the Salvation Army is facing a crisis of its own and it needs your help.
The money that's collected during the annual Red Kettle Campaign helps to pay for about nine months worth of services to the community.
Donations are lagging partly due to a shortage of volunteers. 400 volunteer shifts are going unfilled everyday. That's at a cost of about $30 a kettle, a day. So what does that mean? It could mean fewer opportunities for people like Joshua Guy.
He says, "If it wasn't for the Salvation Army and the company as a whole I would be literally in a park sleeping, because I've been there and I've done that."
Guy was among a group referred to as chronically homeless. For the first time in years, the Warsaw native has a stable home, direction and he's on his way to earning a degree in accounting.
