An unprecedented opportunity for giving this weekend -- for the first time, all donations made to the Grand Forks Salvation Army Saturday and Sunday will be matched by anonymous donors.

The goal is to get the christmas campaign back on track. Kettle donations are down this year in both North Dakota and Minnesota, something major Jon Fjellman blames on the extreme cold.

"Because we're so behind, we're at least 15,000 behind, this is our chance to make it up," said Fjellman.

Every dollar stays local. If you don't want to get out this weekend, you can also donate online or on the phone.
