JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - December 31 is the last day to make charitable donations to count on 2013 tax returns.
Goodwill, The Salvation Army and United Way saw an uptick in donations Tuesday.
For some, this was a trend throughout 2013. But for others, these last minute contributions will carry a long way.
"We're a little down. We've had some challenges to overcome this year," United Way executive director Nanette Heard said.
Heard said the organization has struggled with competition and the economy.
