All the members of Durango’s Salvation Army have resigned. 

The Durango Herald reports, all 12 members quit Tuesday, calling for a boycott of the charity. 

The move comes after national leadership announced the local organization will shift from an entirely volunteer-led effort to a service center with a paid employee. 

Board members worry the changes will take away money from local residents by directing donations to cover costs for staff salary. 

The Salvation Army says a full-time employee will allow the nonprofit to provide more services in the area and won’t take away local funding.
