Did you know that 90% of the Salvation Army kettle donations go right back to the community in which you donate?!? That is an incredible percentage when compared to other similar organizations. Plus, most of their "staff" are volunteers. And if they are paid, they have quite the work load. I just started volunteering with them recently and I have been wonderfully impressed. If you are thinking about donating - the Salvation Army is a good Apple. Do you know of other organizations that can claim that percentage??
