The Salvation Army depends on volunteers to ring bells during the Christmas season.
A bell ringer agrees to stand at The Salvation Army’s kettle for a couple hours, ringing a bell and greeting people as they enter and exit the store. It is even more fun if you bring a friend along.
Money raised in the kettles stays local
Bell ringing locations:
Cabelas (outdoor location)
Walmart (outdoor location, not available until Nov. 29)
Beginning November 22, every day except Thanksgiving day and Sundays until Christmas Eve.
If you have any questions, call Capt. Ruth Sellen: Office (605) 996-3964; Cell (605) 999-5320 or email Ruth_Sellen@usc.salvationarmy.org
