ROSEBURG, Ore. - The Salvation Army in Roseburg gained four new after-hours donation boxes.
The boxes are weather resistant and they'll prevent theft as they can't be reached into and can only be opened with a key.
Staff with the Salvation Army said theft has been a problem in the past. Preventing it is important for them being able to provide to the community.
They said it's a coincidence that they came just in time for the holidays, but a good one, so that all holiday donations will end up where they're supposed to.
They said their goal is to have more of these boxes spread around the county to encourage more people to donate more often.
