Albany- While Tim Converse is out ringing the Salvation Army bell at the mall, his staff at Longhorn Steakhouse is collecting gifts for the organization.
There's a play pin protecting the presents, while the wait staff is using their wardrobe to remind people to give.
"It's a good reminder for people to bring in gifts, to help out the community," Converse said.
You can drop off toys at Longhorn through December 10.
But they're not the only business that's helping out. Carriage Auto Body Repair in Albany has joined forces with 11 other South Georgia body shops. Barrels outside the businesses are for anything from canned goods to toys.
"And I just wish a lot of cities would get involved in working with their cities," said Tracy Searcy who works at Carriage.
Donations are picking up some at the Salvation Army, but they're still low compared to other years.
"The economy is not the best, I'm hoping next year will be much better," Searcy said.
But for now, businesses are trying to make it easier for you to help people who need it.
"It gives you that warm holiday spirit, but we're just making this a better community for everybody," Converse said.
And he's just trying to help, one ring, one donation at a time.
Other body shops that are participating are Gieryic's Citgo, Mitchell Auto Repair, Hudson's Garage, Professional Restoration & Collision, Brooks Auto Parts, Heldenbergs Auto Repair, G&G Auto Electric and Powell Garage.
