'Tis the season for...bell ringing

Posted: Updated:

You can hear the sounds of bells ringing in front of plenty of stores in our area this Christmas season.

The Salvation Army "Red Kettle" campaign is moving full speed ahead.

Members of the FOX10 News team were helping the Salvation Army collect donations at the Walmart store in Fairhope.

Many customers were glad to donate and share the reasons for giving.

But, why do people give?

Here are some of the responses we received:

"Obviously, i'm okay and i know that others that are maybe not that privileged but this organization helps them out."

"Because that's what the spirit of Christmas is about:  giving, not receiving."  

"I like to give from the heart, you know, help people if I can."

"Well, I think everybody should have a chance at Christmas  and this helps."

"I always give to the Salvation Army, to the church. my church, so I love people, I love the Lord." 

Money from the campaign is used for Salvation Army services throughout the year, such as feeding the hungry, providing housing, and helping during natural disasters.
