GENEROUS: Every buck counts, bub

| December 18, 2020 1:00 AM

STEVEN ADAMS, shame on you! How dare you insult the generosity of either the patron, the caption writer or the photographer of $1 going into a Salvation Army Red Kettle.

Every dollar counts and you don’t have any clue as to how precious that dollar is, especially during COVID, where many have no jobs or very little money coming in.

Just to let you know how much that dollar means, if every person in Rathdrum donated a dollar, that would make a total of $6,826. In Kootenai County, a total of $165,697 and if all of Idaho donated, that would be a whopping $1.7 million!

Since you are lucky enough and capable of being very generous, please take this opportunity to donate for your home town of Rathdrum for a total of $6,826. I, and all the recipients of the Salvation Army blessings, thank you. And maybe this will encourage everyone to simply drop that dollar in the red kettle!
