I have never been treated so bad in my life. I feel sorry for the people running this salvation army. I am a single mother of three, ex-husband is in prison so I don't get child support. I do work but just enough to pay bills. Only one of my children was in the age range to recieve help. My other two were too old, who puts a limit on childrens needs. I stood in line for 17 hours over two days, I didn't need toys for my child I was hoping he would get clothes, he got a bike. Im grateful that he got that and he will be happy with it. When you see the volunteers picking and choosing their friends and family and loading them up with an enormous amount of items and then other people with very little you know something is up. I was with this one girl all day wed and she came back thurs. I don't know her name but I wish I did, she was one of the first ones to be called on thurs, she walked away with nothing. She just quietly walked away. How sad.

The Salvation Army will never get another cent off of me. After I seen the people running the show at Statesville it made me sick! They were coming out calling their peeps out 1st then what was leftover they handed it out last. Salvation Army needs to investigate what went on!

I called DSS to add a child who I am the Guardian for (through DSS)to place his name(8yrs old boy) on the Angle tree. I been basicaly unemployed for 3yrs. I was told that the deadline for the list was Oct.25 and recommended me to contact the Salvation Army. Next day the Salvation Army told me the dead line was Oct.25 and the the child name had to be a referral by DSS, lol. Salvation Army suggested to go to First Baptis Baptist Church on Davie Ave. You guessed it, told to go the the Salvation here I am making this post. If anyone see's this post an would like to contact me with information on an Angle tree please email me at, thank you. 11/14/12.

These comments are very upsetting. I have always supported the Salvation Army and think that they do a good job helping our citizens in need.

Captain, how about a response to these accusations?

I have tried and tried to call and no answer and when you get an answer they hang up on you or are very rude. What happen to helping people and enjoying it. Now people really don't understand how hard it is to know your child needs things that you can't get. So sad that these business that are for helping people are not really helpful.

People will donate nice cars, brand new clothes, appliances, etc., not to mention the enormous money contributions, and senior Salvation Army officers will steal these contributions for themselves. It's been an ongoing issue for many years and it's only getting worse. The Salvation Army is a racket syndicate. DO NOT CONTRIBUTE TO THEM!
Please investigate

The ones running the salvation army this year are so rude to their clients in need, please investigate and remove them, get someone to run that place that actually likes people and wants to help them not make them feel worse because they need help.

The attitude with the Captain and his wife are unreal until you ask to speak to someone above them, then they change their tone. Not cool in that line of work. I seriously question their overall character.

Sincerely, worried about the kids in need this year, including my own.
