    OUR VIEW: It's part of the holiday spirit

    There’s a feeling that can come over you this time of year if you go about it in the right way.

    Those folks who have had a Salvation Army bell in their hands, served a Thanksgiving Day meal for someone in need or delivered a meal to a family who needs just a little assistance, you know the feeling you get when you look into the eyes of those you help.

    It is then you feel like you made a difference, maybe just for a few hours, in someone else’s life.
