Salvation Army Mammoth needs volunteers


More today on the Salvation Army in Mammoth Lakes. Co-ordinator Roger Barker underscored that they would welcome bell ringers to work the Salvation Army kettle at Vons. It’s cold work with a warm reward.

Funds from the kettles this time of year help to support ongoing Salvation Army efforts. One of those is a food pantry. It is located at 220 Sierra Manor Road next to Higerd Plumbing. Barker said that donations of food staples to the pantry are very welcomed. Eastern Sierra wide, use of food pantries has gone up with even some of those who have jobs unable to make ends meet.

Barker said volunteers are also needed to work the food pantry. For those who want to volunteer at the food pantry or as a bell ringer, Call Roger Barker at 760-937-5190.

    Yeah, all those welfare queens are dragging down the bonuses for Wall St. hedge fund managers.

    “According to the Census Bureau, more people in America today are on welfare than have full time jobs. There is a culture of dependency being created that is truly shocking. A recent study by the Cato Institute says that welfare now pays more than minimum wage work in 35 states. So why enter the work force at the bottom, if the government will give you the same compensation for sitting on your butt?” 🙂

      Apparently you are quoting, generally considered a right-leaning news organization. The question about this assumption is how many of the people in the census information are on social security, medicare, VA benefits? We do know that many minimum wage workers also have to use food stamps to eat.

      so you are a proponent of raising the minimum wage. Seems reasonable that one should be able to at least support themselves on minimum wage. ie. Their own small apartment, a cheap car, able to pay for utilities. That is certainly not the case right now, probably in any state.

      The ‘owner’s’ say, well then we’ll have to raise prices…Ok, but how about half and half….they can take a hit on their profits and we can pay a bit more. Why does the ‘sacrfifice’ only come from one side and not both?
