JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- The Jonesboro Salvation Army is looking to have a tough financial summer after their biggest financial donor moved away.
Major Eugene Gesner is the core officer for the Salvation Armyin Jonesboro and said their financial problems started about 2 years ago but thereal problem came this year.
"I know we can make it through operations through June butJuly and August, there probably wont be enough money to keep things up atthat rate,"Gesner said.
Gesner says their financial troubles stemmed from bad decision made in the past and a 50% cut from community funding for their shelter, which overall costs them about $50,000.
"Just this Christmas we got word that one of our donors hadmoved out of the area that's one of our major donors, top two donors for thesalvation army for this area," he said.
"And so that's another 10 thousand dollars a year that wewont have coming in."
