Salvation Army helps families celebrate Thanksgiving

By  | 

BISMARCK, N.D. - The Salvation Army food pantry has been feeding an extra rush of people in the build up to Thanksgiving, even taking the limits off of some food items to help families celebrate the holiday a little more.

"Our stock is going down very quickly. It's a ninety day pantry, so they can come every ninety days. The need is still there and it's very strong, of course it's that busy season for us as well," said Nelson De La Vergne, area coordinator.

The Salvation army says they're behind schedule with the annual bell ringer campaign as well. They hope to raise $200,000 by Christmas, but have only raised $10,000 so far.​
