I always thought the bell ringers were volunteers...but an article in our local newspaper this morning about area businesses hiring for the holidays included Salvation Army bell ringers.  I prefer to use a check to the local office of Salvation Army or whatever program I am donating to...that way I have a record of the donation for tax deduction.

where I live I saw one of them dancing on the corner to try to get some people to donate their dollar.

I also thought they were volunteers. Instead of these bell ringers Salvation Army can put a box for spare change outside each grocery store. That way, they can make people donate year round, instead of only during the holiday season.

We sometimes give the change if we see them, and we have the spare change.

We support them by buying used stuff in their stores too.

Same with Goodwill.

I drop in change when I see the Bell Ringers.  Every little bit helps.
Through out the year, we donate to Salvation Army stores

I shop by Debit card all the time, so I don't usually have anything to give. But I do shop at the Salvation Army Thrift store.  I don't think having them year round would be good b/c then people would always think they could give next later in the year and just put it off for longer than they realize. They do great work and I know in some areas they have those things that attach to cell phones so they can swipe a card for a donation but I'd be afraid they were saving my personal info to their phone somehow. Just me.  They do tell you you can text a certain code (each code is local) that gives a $10 donation to them.

I used to give more than I do now, since I rarely use cash anymore.. but I'll give change when I have it.

I think it's good I hope enough people donate and not just walk by all the time. I gave a small donation today. It wasn't much but something.
