Vandals have allegedly broken into the Salvation Army office on Presto Lane in Jackson and disabled their vehicles, pausing kettle operations.
According to a release from the Salvation Army, the vandals cut through the perimeter fence to get into the property.
“Despite this setback, The Salvation Army remains undeterred and is calling upon the resilience and goodwill of the community to join us in turning this misfortune into an opportunity for unity and generosity,” Salvation Army officials said in a press release Wednesday. “The Grinch may have tried to steal our Christmas joy, but we believe that, together, we can overcome this challenge and ensure a festive season for all.”
The Salvation Army is relying on the help of the public to get back up to speed.
“We extend a heartfelt invitation to the community to rally around us during this challenging time. Support our Kettle program, be the extra heart that grows three sizes, and help us spread warmth and kindness throughout the Jackson Metro area this holiday season,” they wrote. “By standing together, we can ensure that the Grinch’s attempt to dim our lights is met with an even brighter display of compassion and goodwill.”
