They are looking to raise $80,000 this year, from the 24 sites in Eugene. The money is used to buy food and presents for Eugene families.
Organizers with the Salvation Army say because Thanksgiving came late this year, they have one less week to ring.
“What we’re trying to do is help out as best we can to all the people, and if we don’t raise the money, then somebody might go hungry and some little girl or some little boy might not get that Christmas present,” said Tobias Ruiz, Salvation Army.
Families who need holiday gifts from the Salvation Army can apply at the West 7th Avenue location in Eugene.
