Residents everywhere in Washington County are crowding the Valley Mall and The Premium Outlets in their eager effort to get the best sales.
Shoppers are trying to purchase gifts for their spouses, family, friends or even secret Santa.
But what are we missing in this season of giving back?
How about the men and women who are outside in the freezing cold asking for donations on behalf of the Salvation Army for children less fortunate?
You see them everywhere trying to collect donations, even outside of Walmart and the post office. You would think everyone who passes by would shove a dollar in their kettles.
But that's not what I have seen. I watch people walk by them as though they were invisible. I work at the mall and witness this all the time.
