Ring the Bells – Volunteers Needed to Make A Happy Christmas
(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) - On Friday November 18, The Salvation Army Corps of San Bernardino begins its annual “Red Kettle” Bell Ringing Campaign. Bell Ringers at the familiar Red Kettles seek donations from local residents to help local families in need during this holiday season.
“Our goal is to raise $150,000 this year to help families have a Happy Christmas and to house the homeless, feed the hungry, and provide hope to the hopeless. This is our major fundraiser for the year. Last year we raised about $100,000 during the holiday season,” said Major Daniel Henderson.
“We are looking for volunteers to Ring the Bells and raise money for The Salvation Army to help the needy this holiday season,” said Major Henderson. “When volunteers ‘Ring the Bells’ it increases the amount of money The Salvation Army has to help people in need.”
The Salvation Army is inviting local colleges, universities, social clubs, service groups, elected officials, singers, bands, local actors, clubs and companies to Ring the Bells at local retail stores. People are signing up to help.
President Tomas Morales of California State University, San Bernardino and President Matthew Madrid of The Art Institute of California – Inland Empire are asking their students, staff and faculty to join the effort to Ring the Bells and help our local people in need.
“Assemblymember Cheryl Brown along with San Bernardino City Councilmember John Valdivia are the first elected officials who have volunteered to Ring the Bells this holiday season,” said Major Henderson. Stater Bros. Markets, Under Armour and Target are also providing volunteers.
Festively-dressed volunteers ringing bells will be deployed to retail outlets in San Bernardino, Grand Terrace, Highland, Colton, Rialto and Bloomington. “Some sing, some dance, some play instruments and some just use their wonderful smiles and the familiar silver bells to attract donations,” said Major Henderson.
The tradition of The Salvation Army “Kettle” during the Christmas Holidays was started in 1891 in San Francisco, by Captain Joseph McFee, in an effort to collect enough money to provide a free Christmas dinner to the poor. Now the tradition has spread worldwide. It has been in San Bernardino since its early years.
Donations collected during the Christmas kettle campaign in San Bernardino are used to provide food baskets and other essential during the Christmas season. Donations are also used by The Salvation Army throughout the year to provide emergency services including food; lodging for homeless or displaced families; clothing and furniture; children’s afterschool and summer camp programs, assistance with rent or mortgage and transportation when funds are available.
The Salvation Army volunteers will Ring the Bells at local locations including: Stater Bros. Markets, Walmart, Inland Center Mall, JC Penneys, Walgreens, Macy’s, Sam’s Club, CVS Pharmacy, Big Lots! and Ralphs.
The Salvation Army also needs donations of toys for children’s Christmas gifts, along with turkeys, hams, stuffing, canned goods, vegetables, pies, cakes and other food for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners and food baskets.
“We always need food donations,” said Major Henderson. “We serve meals to about 300 people a day at our Homeless Shelter, Transitional Living Center, Path to Prosperity Program and free meals every day at 4:45, so food goes fast. We also need donations for our annual free Thanksgiving and Christmas meals, served every year since 1887.”
To volunteer, or if companies who want to donate the staffing of a location to Ring the Bells and help the needy this holiday season, call Lt. Cathie McCulley at The San Bernardino Salvation Army at (909) 888-1336.

Don't Overschedule Yourself
"We rarely have meetings. I hate them. They're a huge waste of time, and they're costly," says Jason Fried, co-founder of 37 Signals, a collaboration-software company in Chicago. "They chop your day into small bits, so you have only 20 minutes of free time here or 45 minutes there. Creative people need unstructured time to get in the zone. You can't do that in 20 minutes."

Fwd: [CSSD] Last chance to register for Oct. 24 Randall Lewis Seminar - "How Are Foreclosures Affecting Voter Turnout?"c
Note new location for seminars: CE-CERT Building, 1084 Columbia Ave., Riverside
The seminar and parking are free, but seats are limited and Registration is required.
To register, go to http://or.ucr.edu/event/index.aspx
Has the record number of California foreclosures resulted in lower voter turnout? A study by UCR sociologist Vanesa Estrada Correa and political scientist Martin Johnson found not only those displaced by foreclosure were less likely to vote in the 2008 election, but their neighbors who remained in their homes also were less likely to cast ballots.
"Other things being equal, individuals are more likely to vote when they live in places where neighbors vigorously participate in politics, while individuals are less likely to vote when their neighbors are less civically active," the scholars said.
Could the region's high foreclosure rate also affect the Nov. 6 election?
Dr. Estrada Correa, an Assistant Professor of Sociology; and Dr. Johnson, an Associate Professor and Chair of Political Science, will discuss their study, its findings, other possible impacts and other research regarding voter turnout at the October Randall Lewis Seminar. The seminar, which is free, will be held at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24 at the CE-CERT Building, 1084 Columbia Ave., Riverside. (See MAP)
Professor Estrada Correa's current work focuses on aspects of racial stratification related to housing and neighborhoods. She has studies racial inequalities in homeownership trends, racial disparities in real estate and mortgage lending outcomes, and the implications of residential mobility patterns for racial segregation, immigrant assimilation and health outcomes. She is currently studying the impacts of the housing crisis on the Inland Empire, particularly focusing on neighborhood change resulting from foreclosures.
She earned a Bachelor's degree in Human Biology at Stanford University and Master's and Ph.D. in Sociology from UCLA.
Professor Johnson's research and teaching interests focus on American political behavior and public policy. He is currently studying how social context and other sources of information shape public opinion and the policy choices governments make.
He earned a Bachelor's degree in Journalism from Louisiana State University and a Master's and Ph.D. in Political Science from Rice University.
