The Salvation Army has issued a scam warning, saying a man is going to Huntington homes asking for donations.

The Salvation Army said in a news release Thursday it received an anonymous tip Tuesday about a person going door to door asking for donations for the charity.

The person is described as a white male in his mid-40s. He has been seen carrying a red bucket similar to the organization's standard bucket.

Captain Jerry Lester of the Salvation Army's Huntington branch says the organization does not go door to door asking for donations.
