It has fought bad weather, and a drop in donations and volunteers.

But the Salvation Army in Lexington isn't giving up on its push to help needy families during the holidays.

The non-profit gave out more toys and food vouchers Wednesday at its Christmas Center on South Broadway.

Organizers say the bad weather has taken a toll on its Red Kettle campaign.

It's the Salvation Army's biggest fundraiser of the year.

There is also a shortage of bell ringers.

The Salvation Army says right now it's almost $20,000 behind its fundraising goal.
