LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- On Wednesday, the Salvation Army warehouse had nothing but mayonnaise, turkey chunks and ramen to work with, a troubling sight for food drive coordinator Michael Wells.

“To tell you the truth we would have run out of food by tomorrow,” Wells said on Thursday. 

The stock dwindled over the past few months with an increase in need and a decrease in donations. In the spring, the Salvation Army helped 130 families a day. Now, it's up to 200 each day.

So when the Salvation Army sent out a cry for help, the community came forward, giving the a few weeks’ worth of supplies overnight, including one donor who walked in and hand the charity $10,000 to go shopping for food.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
