On Friday, November 10, 2017 The Salvation Army will kick-off its annual Tree of Lights Campaign and area residents will begin seeing the iconic red kettles in front of local retail locations. Volunteer bellringers are needed to help cover several thousand hours of bellringing.
“The red kettles are The Salvation Army’s largest annual fundraising event. This is only possible because of the generosity of the hundreds of volunteers who are willing to ring a bell at one of our kettles,” said Major Butch Frost, Corps Officer. “The money raised in the kettles each year is critical in funding our programs year round.”
Volunteers of all ages are welcome to assist with this program. To sign up volunteers can visit www.registertoring.com or call The Salvation Army’s main office at 417-862-5509 ext. 116 or ext. 102.
Each year The Salvation Army assists thousands of families in Greene and Christian Counties through a wide variety of programs. For full details regarding local programs, please visit The Salvation Army website at www.salvationarmyspringfield.org.
