Salvation Army needs volunteers to ring bells

The Salvation Army invites individuals and organizations to attend its Welcome Campaign Kickoff at 10 a.m. Nov. 23 at the main entrance of Santa Rosa Mall, 300 Mary Esther Blvd., Mary Esther.

Join the Red Kettle Campaign's Honorary Chair, Northwest Florida Daily News Publisher Tim Thompson, and the Beach Brass for the campaign kickoff.

Share the Christmas spirit by manning a Salvation Army Red Kettle and help the organization continue the tradition of the ringing bells across Northwest Florida communities.

The volunteers make it possible for the Salvation Army to help those in need long after the Christmas tree and decorations have been packed away.

Those who would like to ring the bell Mondays through Saturdays in Okaloosa and Walton communities may contact Salvation Army Lt. Camilo Rojas at 243-4531 or Board Chair Tom Rice at 302-0266.
