It's that time of year again

There are always people out there that are less fortunate than us. Thankfully there are individuals and organizations that go out of their way to help out the community. Even if it is just a little bit, it helps. Salvation Army is still looking for volunteers to ring bells. It is super easy and time goes really fast. They handle the kettle, bell, apron, and pickup of everything. You don't even need to speak to anyone to sign up, it is all online! How easy is that? Just remember to dress accordingly. Patty and daughter rang bells last Saturday, I'm scheduled for the 4th of December at Bag N' Save. Check into it if you want to ring a bell.

One thing that is really cool is that they send you an email/piece of mail that thanks you and tells you the amount of donations you helped raise during your shift. Coins and bills may not seem like much during your shift, but when you get that piece of mail and it says that over $250 was raised by you during your shift, you're wow! I really did help to make a difference!
