Salvation Army officers say a large corporate donation may have saved Christmas, but they still need the public's help to get through next year.
Sikorsky parent company Lockheed Martin donated $100,000 to the Salvation Army Wednesday morning to help distribute toys for Christmas all over the northeast.
Maj. Katherine Longcoy says the holidays are the most important fundraising period for the Bridgeport corps and the charity as a whole.
Corporate donations aside, she says Salvation Army still needs a lot of help to keep feeding those in need.
Longcoy says the pandemic has made it harder to recruit ringers for the iconic Salvation Army bells.
