Massena Bell Ringer Sings & Dances To Help Needy
A Massena man is helping spread holiday cheer by encouraging people to be generous to those less fortunate.
Sixty-three year old Carl Zender puts a lot of effort into his time as a volunteer bell ringer for the Salvation Army's red kettle campaign.
He often does a song and dance, instead of just standing there ringing the bell.
"Every year I get my kettle full before I leave my shift," he said.
"And everybody says that because I'm so jolly and cheerful that it just puts them in the Christmas spirit."
"The need is greater than ever," said the Salvation Army's Lt. Russell Crowsen, " just because the economy is not doing so well and it's also hard to find steady full-time employment.
And donations have been steady so far.
