Salvation Army receives donation from Lions Club for toys

Salvation Army Angel Tree deadline is Friday Dec. 15

"They have tried to scrub their image, but still discriminate", the person claimed.

"The important thing is that no one was hurt, and for that, we are grateful", Lt. Michael Evans of The Salvation Army Las Cruces Corps Community Center said.

The Salvation Army offers practical assistance for children and families, often tending to the basic necessities of life, providing shelter for homeless people and rehabilitation for people who have lost control of their lives to an addiction.

"Many Australians believe we, as a nation, are not doing enough to help those in need".

The charity is encouraging people to add an extra toy to their shopping list so that families struggling to buy a gift for their children can ensure there is a surprise under the Christmas tree.

"We take this opportunity to sincerely apologize to anyone we have offended", the Holy Donut post continued. "We are an organization which prides itself on our track record of kindness and acceptance of everyone".

Volunteers who are wishing to lend a helping hand can do so by calling the local Salvation Army branch on Cumberland Street.

It has grown to become the largest non-governmental direct provider of social services in the country.

Major Raphael Jackson of the Northern New England Salvation Army, spoke with WCSH6 about the Holy Donut controversy.

"She brought in more donations than I did because she was 4 and cute, and would run around and sing Christmas carols", she said. "If you feel like you are being discriminated against because of race, creed, color, sexual orientation, national origin or anything like that, then I need to know".

Evangelist Franklin Graham weighed in on the issue.
