ATLANTA — We sometimes hear of Christmas cheer when a Salvation Army red kettle volunteer is having a meager day raising money, but suddenly, at the end of the day, finds a small fortune or a precious ring that someone had slipped into the kettle, to help others.
And doesn’t the donor often turn out to be someone like a retiree, who doesn’t have a fortune to give?
“I know there’s an extreme need.”
Someone like Bruce Longino.
“I’m still working part time, so, I thought the check should go to people that were not able to work.”
