WLOX Editorial: It is not just a season of shopping, but also a season of giving

That time of year is here again. It's the season of shopping; looking for those special gifts for family and friends. As we launch into the holiday season, let us not forget that it is not just a season of shopping, but also a season of giving.

The season of giving to those who are not as fortunate as you. Or maybe they have just recently fallen on hard times.

The Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign is a good way to make sure your dollars are going to help those in the most need. Since 1907, the Salvation Army has helped South Mississippians through every war and the Great Depression.

The Salvation Army was on the front line to help during hurricanes like Camille and Katrina. And Salvation Army workers and volunteers are there today helping people through crisis after crisis.

You are helping when you walk by those red kettles and drop in some cash.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
