“We want people to know they can make a difference this holiday season,” Corps Officer Cristian Lopez said. “This match is a way for one person’s $20 to be doubled in value in their community.”

The Salvation Army said the need in Topeka this year is greater than they’ve ever experienced.

“We’re asking everyone to please find a few minutes on Saturday, find a kettle location near them, and make that donation that can help a family struggling in crisis,” Lopez said.
