After a somewhat contentious holiday season, Giant Food and the Salvation Army National Capital Area Command are looking to make amends.
Despite a rebounding economic climate, the Salvation Army red kettle collections, sometimes known to provokes some anxiety from passers by, is fairing much worse than previous years.
As wreaths and laurels pop up in public spaces, so do the Salvation Army bell ringers, standing on street corners and in front of stores, soliciting pedestrians to put donations in the red kettle. Though some might say "guilting" is a better term for it.
Donations to the Salvation Army's Red Kettle Drive in the D.C. area are down so far this year, and the charity attributes the drop in part to a cutback on the amount of time bell ringers can spend at one grocery chain.
Giant Food has decided to slash the number of hours and days that Salvation Army bell ringers can be outside of their stores this holiday season, and the group is expecting the change to hurt fund raising efforts for the year.
The Salvation Army kicked off their Red Kettle campaign Thursday, with a half dozen kettles and bell ringers outside their D.C. headquarters.
