Bell Ringing Opportunities

bell-ringingHow do you make a Holiday Season better? Each family has their own traditions of picking out a Christmas tree together or giving a great gift on the first day of Hanukkah. No matter what your tradition is, this is a great time to start a new one with the family or 4-H club!

Ringing the Salvation Army bell has been around for many years. Volunteering your time at the kettles is the jumping off point for helping the less fortunate share in the holiday spirit they may have thought they would miss out on. The Salvation Army will help hundreds have a small portion of what is “normal” for us. Giving back is what the holidays are all about. You may get a little cold, maybe a little tired, and give up some of the time you could have had for other Yuletide activities, but you will meet hundreds of shoppers who give for the simple reason that they want to help those who need it, too. We are truly a part of a great society and it is important that we contribute to the welfare of that society as long as we can. The following days and times are still available, if you would like to sign up for a time slot please contact Toland Van Sant at (302) 738-4168 Home or (302) 540-1539 Cell.
