Every year, local volunteers help the Salvation Army collect donations during the Christmas season for families in need.

Donations are collected in red kettles around Fort Wayne.

Outside of the Sam's Club on Hanes Mall Blvd., you'll find Earl Baldwin sitting in his wheelchair, ringing his bell, and giving a kind word to anyone who walks past him.

"This is how we start off Christmas", Capri Hotel spokesperson Ally Fraser said.

Goaltender Petr Mrazek and left winger Tomas Tatar are scheduled to join Capt. Jeff Eddy of the Salvation Army at the Kroger store, 2200 E. 12 Mile Road, to raise donations. "It's going to help a lot of people".

The day the coin was deposited, "I noticed a man with a hospital mask on his face, and he had this big thing and he took time to put it in there", kettle manner George Hariston says.

Since past year, the Salvation Army has had to divide funds between its Christmas drive and hurricane relief.

"The Lions Club is a caring group looking for places to help the community", said Benner, who is also a member.

For Baldwin, it's all about spreading joy for a good cause.

The friendly competition is to help raise money for the Salvation Army, a ministry motivated by feeding the hungry, clothing the needy, housing the homeless and supporting people throughout the community.

The Salvation Army Isle of Wight homeless service is opening its doors to the homeless from now until the end of March.
