It feels and sounds like Christmas outside of a Yorktown Farm Fresh.

That's thanks to a special volunteer who is known as Cee-Cee.

The grandfather of five is taking bell ringing for the Salvation Army to a whole new level.

It's the way he says he gives back to the community.

"The whole thing about Christmas is spreading love and joy and that's what I'm trying to do," says Cee-Cee.

The Salvation Army actually helped him find a job.

"This is the only place I know I can be every year and I can count on that at Christmas time," says Cee-Cee.

He is ringing the bell for thousands of families in need.

Sometimes he is ringing the bell for his own family.

"They have always been my Christmas spirit and my blessing came from there," he says.

He is spreading Christmas cheer in what ever tune he chooses.  He says this is the way he shows love.

Customers love it and one even told NewsChannel 3 that he donated for the first time ever thanks to Cee-Cee and his positive spirit.

"He is just really exhibiting Christmas spirit and how happy he is to be alive and it's amazing. You don't see that a lot," says a customer.
