KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Salvation Army of Kansas and Western Missouri is experiencing a lack of donations, specifically in the Kansas City area.
There are 250 kettles set-up across the Kansas City metro, but they haven't collected as much as they normally do, likely due to the warm weather.
However, a very generous donor is stepping up to help. Someone in the metro is pledging to match all Red Kettle donations between now and Christmas, up to $500,000.
"It makes such a difference. I mean, we're able to help more people, we're able to help people with more support to get them toward stability, provide help for people. It's a big difference," said Major Evid Diaz, Salvation Army.
This donor's promise means there's a potential of raising one million dollars for the Salvation Army this holiday season.
The Salvation Army hopes there will be more donations coming in as the temperature drops.
"Always, no matter the weather as we get closer to Christmas, people get more in the spirit and their generous hearts come out and we see that, " said Major Diaz.
