Salvation Army Tries to Adapt to Pandemic

NEW YORK  —  There will still be people out ringing the bell for Salvation Army donations.  But, the nonprofit is being forced to adapt because of the pandemic.

It writes on its website there are more people hurting and there are fewer Red Kettles to help them.

There will be fewer people out ringing bells, and those who are out will be wearing masks and trying to keep their distance.

The Salvation Army also expects to take in a lot less in donations to those Red Kettles because fewer people will be out shopping.

To help overcome that, they are taking donations online.
