Salvation Army Bell Ringing Begins Nov 11th  Thumbnail

Salvation Army Bell Ringing Begins Nov 11th

The bell ringing season starts each November and runs through Christmas Eve, when the red kettles are packed away for the season. Volunteers are the difference between an empty kettle and one that raises about $30 per hour – enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries, or shelter an individual for a night.
