One of the many changes the Covid plague has made on our society is the lack of bell ringers. I don't know about the rest of the country, but there certainly aren't any around where I go. I used to have a cup that accumulated change over the year. I'd take it down to one of the bell ringing places and dump the coins, probably around fifty bucks worth, into the little red kettle. I just noticed, this year I've got the coins, but no kettles. I noticed Coinstar was more than happy to take my coins and forward the money to various charities.
