With Christmas fast approaching, time is winding down on the Salvation Army's big year-end fundraiser.

Literally hundreds of thousands of Western Pennsylvanians are assisted by The Salvation Army each year during times of crisis.

Today marked the final day of toy and food distribution through the Salvation Army's Christmas assistance program.

"We are just the bridge connection the people who want to help, with the people who need the help", said Kim Duquette, Salvation Army family services director. "We would not be able to raise these much-needed funds without their support". The IRA Charitable Rollover allows individuals who are 70 1/2 years old to donate up to $100,000 to charitable organizations directly from their IRA, without that donation being counted as taxable income when it is withdrawn.

Toys donated from Corus Radio London listeners to the Salvation Army.

But hundreds more might go without this year, because the need is outpacing donations.

"We're volunteers, so we're not paying anybody".

"We set up a little differently this year, tweaking some small things like rearranging some tables and various areas in the building and it worked out well", Wendy Deuel said.

Bells won't be heard and kettles are not at the sites on Sundays.

Perhaps the huge success of WCAP's annual Salvation Army Radiothon has created the impression that all of the local Army's fundraising needs have been met.

Bell ringers will be out accepting donations through December 23rd.
