This question already has an answer here:

The situation comes up a lot. You're praying the morning prayers in synagogue and it's erev shabbos/yom tov; the collectors flood the synagogue. Should you give a bigger amount to fewer collectors or try to split up what you're willing to give to accommodate them all?
