Officials with the Salvation Army say they’re seeing a record number of families asking for help this holiday season.

Nearly 18,000 families have registered for Christmas assistance in the last month. That number has grown by 2,500 since last year, breaking the 2009 record.

Registered families will get free toys, money for food and other donated items at up to six Salvation Army locations as well as other partnered agencies. If you’d like to donate, contact the Salvation Army at (651) 746-3595.

  1. “…it doesn’t matter… it doesn’t matter”

  2. And every one of them voted for Obama.

  3. The Salvation Army mostly helps out Obama voters. Please choose a children’s charity instead or a charity that helps people overseas.

    Obama voters don’t deserve your help.

  4. Could be the truly needy, or could be just more of the 47% gaming the system?

  5. #3 Ben

    I fully agree. . . let the WON work his wonders as he is the Welfare King. . .with free phones too for those irresponsible in life.

    It is one thing to help someone in need going through a transition. . it is another thing to support those who choose to live in need for life.

    For me Charity begins at home with friends and family, many affected by unemployment or illness.

    Time for liberals to see what happens when the money train says NO MORE!!!

  6. I agree … the 47% can bite me. My help will go to the people who I know actually want to work ….

  7. How can this be with all the postive economic numbers coming out and the economy back on track, heck, we added 145k jobs last month, all high paying (lmao).

    Like most, I will not donate to this or any other charity that just hands it out to those that ask with no real check in place to show actual need. Truth is, I know people that game the system and all the while, the real needy suffer because they are just lazy, stupid . . . . pigs.

    No, I will help friends and family that have been severly impacted by this woeful economy as I know that they are trying to right the ship and get back on their feet.

    Never had a problem helping the “helpless” and “needy”, but sick of helping “lazy” and “ignorant”.

    Happy holidays folks.

  8. But, but, Romney wanted to ban tampons or something….

  9. What’s wrong?

    This is a good thing!

    A poor hungry worker is a is an easily intimidated 0bama worker! He/she is a perfect food stamp person… who I can cut-off – if he/she doesn’t become a mindless tool for me!

    This also shows that my job killing policies are forcing the poor smucks to become dependent on the government for food. If they don’t get on the bus and protest for higher taxes – I will cut-off their WIC and Food Stamps. Ha-ha!

    My limousine is guzzling $4.16 per gallon premium gas and Ed Assner and Barney Frank are in the back seat. Ed is going to give Barney Frank a golden shower before he shafts him! It’s a perfect photo op! I cannot answer any of your questions. Good day.

  10. How dare these nonprofits steal customers from the government. Instead of jobs, food and shelter, folks could be getting ObamaPhones and Sandra Fluke Condoms.

    May someone high up issue the memo to take down these Salvation Army scumbags. There can be only one!

  11. Really ?
    This surprises you how?

  12. After the election I quit giving donations to the charities.It has been made clear by the election that such things are the responsibility of the federal government.So ingrained is the entitlement mentality that folks who lived in the path of storm Sandy had to have matches handed out to them by the government.It is totally shocking that folks living in an area who should reasonably expect to have such events happen from time to time( not to mention this was forecast days in advance) did not have the foresight to have the most basic needs of life on hand.It was at this point I decided to jump off the charity ship.Most of the people affected by the storm overwhelmingly support the bigger government bigger brother lifestyle.Now the should live by it.
    I still do donate but rather to organizations that will hopefully break the mentality of the dependence state.That isn’t to say that I have quit entirely -I do help out locally with the pantry ,temporary assistance and the Santa programs.

  13. Up here in MA, St. Vincent de Paul and the Salvation Army are so mobbed, you can’t park in their parking lot. Everyday. Same with our public library. And our food pantry. But the liberals in this state assure me we are in the very best of hands.

  14. Give to the military charities. Stop supporting the lazy Obama voter.

  15. charities will be a thing of the past if obama has his ways. in with the lazy obama voter are a lot of victims of the obama voter candidate of choice. in their zeal to take it to the greedy rich they also take down the biggest contributors to those very same charities.

  16. where I live we are seein a lot of ‘gas-station grifters’ I call
    ‘em. I don;t give them a dime. I tell them Obama has spent all the money now. there is nothing left for most people. Sign up for a program-you’ll get as much as $450 a week from the govt for as many as 99 weeks!
    That is the unemployment amount lately being pd out. It is crazy to have Obama spending and expect the local workers to continue to support the beggars.
    Remember, It would take a human, counting as in 1…2…3, thirty-two thousand years (32,000) to count to a trillion.
