This holiday season the need is greater than ever as more and more people in our community fall into poverty. Christmas is typically the time we raise the most money for our neighbors in need. Our volunteer red kettle bell ringers play an essential role in our ability to serve families and children this time of year.
“The Salvation Army’s iconic red kettles and bell ringers will be seen and heard around town in the coming week. When shoppers drop money into the kettle or donate online via our virtual kettles the holiday spirit multiplies. All donations stay in the local community, directly helping people in need”, says Divisional Commander for the Northwest Division, Lt. Colonel Cindy Foley.
Throughout the Northwest Division, spanning across Washington and parts of Idaho and Montana, there are giving people and communities that care about each other wanting to help others. Without the support of enough volunteer red kettle bell ringers many families and children will lose their shelter, heat, and food this Christmas. We ask our church friends, our local community representatives, our devoted public officials, and friends of The Salvation Army to make a real difference in the hope and future of our neighbors in need.
Please consider volunteering as a bell ringer with friends and family this Christmas season. To volunteer, sign up on the Salvation Army Register to Ring website.
