Chicago police superintendent Jody Weis manned a Salvation Army kettle during this season of giving. Weis stood outside Macy's flagship store on State Street Monday morning. He was joined by a couple of police officers to ring bells and urge holiday shoppers to take time to think about others.

"We did it last year. And I think it's going to be a yearly tradition that the Chicago Police Department will come out and work with the Salvation Army in an attempt to raise donations. We'll do it for about an hour. Just in terms of doing our part to try and let people know that this is the time of year we should think about people less fortunate," said Supt. Jody Weis, Chicago Police Dept.

The Salvation Army hopes to raise $12 million through its Red Kettle Campaign.
