Volunteer bell ringers needed for Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) - There are currently not enough volunteers to help with the Red Kettle Campaign fundraising efforts, Salvation Army officials say.
The group says they need community members to donate their time to help staff various Red Kettle locations across town. They say bell ringing for even just two hours can feed a family for a week.
“As of today, we have many locations to ring bells at, but no ringers,” Captain Kenyon Sivels, Corps Officer said. “If there is no ringer, there is no kettle to donate. These missed funds are used throughout the entire year to serve those less fortunate in our community.”
Officials say there are many locations and time slots available for any interested volunteer. Teams, clubs, groups, co-workers, and families can sign up to ring at www.RegisterToRing.com or by calling (260) 744-2311.
This year, the Salvation Army has a fundraising goal of $237,000 in order to continue offering assistance programs to those in need throughout 2022.
