SALVATION ARMY RED KETTLE BELL RINGING VOLUNTEERS WANTED!

Once again, we have an opportunity to “do good” by ringing the bell for the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign. Every donation provides help and hope for those in need and will be used locally to meet the greatest need. In these difficult times, the familiar bell ringing and red kettles help remind us of the season and what it means. We will be ringing the bell at the south entrance to Kroger at 6 Mile Road and Haggerty Road on selective Fridays and Saturdays beginning the day after Thanksgiving.

Please click on the sign-up genius link below to reserve your spot for a two-hour shift. Dress warmly, wear your mask, and enjoy this annual event with family or friends.
