FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) The Salvation Army is getting ready for the holiday season, which means getting its iconic red kettles out of storage and preparing for the thousands of children and families helped through its assistance programs.
But there’s one thing the Salvation Army needs to be successful this season: You.
The organization is looking for volunteer bell ringers to staff the many red kettle locations around town. Money raised from the Red Kettle Campaign is used to help people in need all year long, Salvation Army said.
The Red Kettle Campaign kicks off Nov. 13. Teams, clubs, groups, co-workers and families can easily sign up to help online or by calling Roxanne at 260-744-2311.
There are other opportunities to lend a helping hand through the Salvation Army’s Christmas Assistance Programs. The organization expects more than 2,000 children and families will apply for assistance through Angel Tree, Card-A-Teen, and Adopt-A-Family programs.
