Every year around Christmas the Salvation Army sends several homeless people slash volunteers to the streets of Brno with the traditional red pots on tripods to collect contributions from Christmas shoppers.
This year people in Brno donated CZK 170,000 (ca. $10,000). SA will renovate a kitchen in one of the asylum homes in Brno where homeless people can come and cook their own meals.
Normally this money is used to prepare huge Christmas dinners for the homeless. They did have their Christmas Day dinner, too, paid and cooked thanks to other financial resources.
