Wonderful experience

To the Editor:

My daughter and I recently volunteered in Crystal Lake and Cary for bell ringing for The Salvation Army on the weekend before Christmas. What a wonderful experience! I was amazed at the generosity and good cheer of the local McHenry County residents.

I always have donated to The Salvation Army at this time of year, but had never “rang,” thinking I had waited too late to sign up. We volunteered for a Christmas Eve day stint earlier that morning, as there were still unfilled spots.

We raised a lot of money, had a great time, and it was one of the highlights of our Christmas season. We will be back next year. Come out and join us to raise money for a great organization.
