At this time of the year, The Salvation Army operates a tremendous program to assist those less fortunate. To do this is NOT free, nor inexpensive. This is where YOU appear. It is important to note that you are a representative of The Salvation Army as a bell ringer. In fact, you are considered to BE The Salvation Army by the public. You are an employee of The Salvation Army. You are expected to exemplify the same expectations. Every day you are seen by the public who is quick to judge and slow to forgive. The impression you give on the kettle affects The Salvation Army in every way, and on a year round basis. It is imperative that a set of rules, policies, and guidelines be established and enforced upon you, the bell ringer.
