"We still have shifts available to be fill".

New to the Christmas Kettle campaign this year is a pilot project, which Sadowy is hoping to see rolled out in December, and will allow the option of digital payments at some locations.

At The Salvation Army's local volunteer meet and greet she said she offers her time because more than six decades ago, The Salvation Army helped her when she was just a little girl. That includes providing shelter, purchasing holiday meals and maybe helping a family in need buy Christmas presents.

"Bellringing is just a two-hour commitment", said Galindo.

Roche volunteers a few times a week, as well as volunteering for the Salvation Army's Christmas Hamper campaign. "Once again we ask for the community's help to make Christmas bright for families in need so no child or senior is forgotten". "It helps with our emergency food services... a year ago we provided more than 20 thousand bags of groceries to individuals and families", said Maria Sadowy from the Kingston branch. "It supports us year round so we're able to help people and restore hope and dignity on a daily basis and help people out of the cycle of poverty".

Monies collected from the campaign more than found a way back into the community, according to Rowland.
