Good to know I have been donating for some years now, giving every month. I choose a charity by random and it has been awhile since I donated to Salvation Army. I usual give money to Salvation Army when I see them outside of a store during the Holidays. I will add them back on my list. We have to give back to help others out.

I tried all day yesterday to get through and even called after hours just hoping to hear a phone ring and nothing! I called as late as 10:30 last night and called again this morning at 7 and the phones were still busy. It makes me wonder how anyone is getting through when all I get is a busy signal, even when they're closed. As big as the salvation army is you would think they would allow people to apply online as well. I am a single mom to a 7 year old who's father is incarcerated and bust my rear just to make sure he has a roof over his head, since the state won't help me out either! Any suggestions?

This must be a joke! I've been calling since 7am, only to get a busy signal. How can we get help if people can't get through the phone line? Who dropped the ball on this one. Common sense would have told the Salvation Army that additional phone lines would be needed for something this big. Maybe they just wanted the publicity from the news.

A family member of mine called the main line at the Salvation Army and asked them about this and was told that there are only 6 phones that they are taking calls on. Said that since it's volunteers they take what they can get. She was told to keep trying because there are people there working and the phones are working correctly.(She said that as for the busy signals after hours, it's because they take the phones off of the hook)
She also called news channel 3 and was told good luck!
Really -- there are too many people that need help this year and we have 6 people working this? Sounds to me that this may need to be reconstructed next year!
