This makes the second consecutive year a gold coin has been dropped into a Louisville Red Kettle.

The Salvation Army handed out Christmas gifts to families that signed up for the annual Angel Tree program.

It's another color of coin showing up in kettles this season that has these guys excited.

Bell ringers in Fanueil Hall say its actually one of the best spots in town for collections thanks to all the shoppers and tourists, but as a whole, the state is falling short.

"We can use the volunteering on the kettles and the donors to gain a lot of money to help people in our community".

The sound of Bobbi O'Mara's small silver bell rang across the Wal-Mart parking lot December 15. "I had her so I had to quit working and that is one reason why.it got a little tight having a new one, but actually it is a real blessing". Lason recently started going through tough times and truly knows how much every coin is needed. As people approached the entrance, O'Mara joyfully engaged them with a nod or a brief comment - not a conversation starter or an attempt to solicit charity, but something warm and cheerful they could take or leave at their will. At Costco, debit and credit donations are being accepted via Tap to Donate, cheques can be hand delivered or mail to the Salvation Army Kingston Citadel at 816 Centennial Drive, credit card donations can be made over the phone by calling 613-548-1600, ext. Williams said the goal is to raise $515,000 in Louisville and he think's they'll surpass it.

The Salvation Army in Springfield says $350,000 is still needed to meet this year's Tree of Lights campaign goal.
