Cleveland, OH - The Salvation Army in northeast Ohio is saying that the closing of grocery stores could cause decreased holiday kettle donations this year.

Tops supermarkets are closing or selling 46 stores, moving themselves completely from the region which was a major source of revenue for the Salvation Army bell-ringers.

Giant Eagle supermarkets are buying 18 of those above mentioned stores, but only a couple will be re-opened in time for the season.

Salvation Army officials say they hope to raise $650,000 dollars this season, and want to remind people that they can also donate money online by using a credit card.
