Ring A Bell For The Salvation Army During The Holidays

The Salvation Army Red Kettle Bell ringers have been ringing the bells outside of retail locations during the holiday season every year since the first bells rang out in San Francisco in 1881. It takes quite a few volunteers to ring those bells to help bring in monetary donations to support the Salvation Army each year.

The bells begin ringing on Thanksgiving and people start donating money to the little red kettles that will be used to purchase toys for children for the holidays, food for families in need and the donations also provide monetary assistance to help those in need, to fund many other social services that are desperately needed and to help out those that are affected by disasters.

The Salvation Army is currently looking for volunteers to fill more than 1300 two-hour time slots around Tyler to ring the bell at the red kettle. You can volunteer in Tyler, Whitehouse, Lindale, Bullard, Chandler or Flint. If you have the time this holiday season and can volunteer you can sign up on the volunteer site.

When going out shopping this holiday season, when you see the bell ringers, thank them and drop in a donation – no matter how much it is, it’ll help out a lot of people.
