We're ringing in the holiday season and some people are celebrating by volunteering.
Jim Collins has been a volunteer for the last 8 years, collecting money for the Salvation Army.
He says that he does this because he gets to see a lot of friendly and familiar faces plus make a positive difference for his community.
If you're able to spot Jim at one of the many locations, you can guarantee a smile and some extra treats as a thank you.
"Whatever they want to put in there and I tell them after they put it in I say I like that change in there, it gives this thing some weight and at the end of the day they think I've done something," said Jim Collins, Salvation Army Bell Ringer.
Jim adds that he's volunteering in the red apron almost everyday with the Salvation Army during this holiday season.
