If you have done any shopping in the last month and a half, there is a good chance you've encountered at least a few Salvation Army bell ringers.  Braving the cold weather, they stand outside the doors of local stores, ringing their bells, hoping to attract the attention of shoppers.  Hoping those shoppers will throw a few dollars into their kettle.

While thousands of people in our area have their a handful of change or a few dollars into the kettles, there are thousands who wanted to, but couldn't because they "never carry cash".

The great news is that you can still make a donation to the Capital Region Salvation Army.  And, you don't even need to have cash on hand to do it!

You can make a donation online using a credit / debit card, Apple Pay, Venmo, or Google Pay.  Make your donation by clicking HERE.

The donation form automatically determines where you are located so your donation will stay in the area.  Alternatively, you can select a specific area for your donation to go.  For example, if you wanted your donation to go to New Bedford, Massachusetts, you could note that in the online donation form.

The Salvation Army does so much good in our area, and around the world.  They feed and clothe those in need, the provide relief in the wake of disasters, the help with education, and much more.

Remember, you do not need to donate a pile of cash.  Every little bit helps.  Even that handful of change that you toss into the bucket.

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
