In D.C., put more in the Salvation Army kettle (and spend less at Giant)

If you live in the Washington, D.C. area, put a few more dollars in The Salvation Army kettle this year. Their giving is down significantly because Giant foodstores have cut back the time the Army can ring bells outside their stores.  Our friends the Morris’s direct the work in the D.C. area; they’re working hard to make up the difference in giving so they can maintain service to those in need this winter and throughout the year.

My suggestion: this season, spend $10 less at Giant and put it in the Salvation Army kettle.  They’ll put it to go use this Christmas.
