ROSEVILLE, Minn. — A $1 Million Match Challenge was offered by multiple anonymous donors to The Salvation Army.
The money was given as a "challenge to the Twin Cities community" to match the "generosity" of the donors, according to a press release. It means that every donation made to The Salvation Army from now until Dec. 31 will have double the impact.
“We are immensely grateful for the donors who are part of this match effort,” said Salvation Army Northern Division commander Lt. Colonel Dan Jennings. “For those who’d like to make a difference in the lives of struggling neighbors, this match is a great opportunity to double that impact.”
The Salvation Army says that with inflation looming and over 80,000 Minnesotans at risk of being evicted, the need for services the organization offers is "rising sharply." These services include helping families keep their homes as well as providing assistance for food, rent and utilities.
To donate to the Salvation Army, you can visit their website, donate in any Red Kettle, text MATCH to 24-365 or give them a call at (651) 746-3491.
