Salvation Army Loses Donations as Giant Limits Bell Ringing
WASHINGTON Donations to the Salvation Army in the Washington area have fallen 15 percent below last year's in the first two weeks of its Christmas season bell-ringing campaign, officials from the organization said, dragged down by the continuing recession and a new limit on ringing outside Giant Food stores.
Giant announced the limit in October, in what it said was an effort to allow more local nonprofit organizations access to its customers. Giant allows only one organization at a time to solicit in front of its stores. The Salvation Army previously had exclusive rights from Nov. 12 to Dec. 24, but this year is limited to one week in November and one week in December, a Giant spokesman said.
