NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – It’s a season of giving, and yet the Salvation Army is still in need.

They’re short on volunteers to ring bells outside stores for collections. Their donations are down by about 30 percent.

That means people who need help, like the homeless and the hungry, may not get what they need.

News 2 talked to a volunteer who said it’s not just about ringing a bell.

“It’s a great way to give to charity simply by serving, and you cheer people up as they come by, wishing them a merry Christmas. You know, how are you doing, and light conversation. I think some people don’t have any conversations during the day, so this is a great way to cheer them up as well,” said Capt. Mark Czanderna.
