On Saturday, December 10th, the BlueXpress staff braved the cold winter weather to give back to the community. 13 members of the staff rang bells at the Apple Blossom Mall for the Salvation Army. The BlueXpress staff enjoyed their time meeting different members of the community. Everyone, ranging from small children and Senior citizens were eager to drop money into the small red kettle after hearing the rings from the bells. Holiday joy was spread to everyone, both strangers and the staff. The large smiles seen on the faces of strangers after giving and being told “Happy Holidays!” was a highlight of the night for the staff. Knowing the impact the money and the smiles given to strangers passing by made braving the blustery air worth it for the staff.
