COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Friday marks National Day of Giving, and the Salvation Army in Columbus wants people to give back to those in need.
Local radio stations 98.3 The Beat and 103.7 Lite FM were at the Salvation Army on Manchester Expressway to help collect donations.
82 percent of the money given to the Salvation Army is put back into the community.
"This day and age, it seems like a lot of people are concerned about what they are going to get. But today, we want them to be concerned about giving back to the community and making a better community," says Angela Peterson, program director at 98.3 The Beat.
The Salvation Army is also looking for school supplies, clothing, and food for pantries.
