From The Salvation Army of Washington

The Salvation Army of Washington is looking for volunteers—individual and groups—to ring the bells at the Red Kettles this Christmas season. The Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign is a critical fundraiser for the organization’s Christmas assistance and year-round programs that address social concerns in the community.

Volunteer opportunities are Nov. 9 to Dec. 24,Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. To volunteer, contact Denise Cahoon at (252) 946-2523.

Last year, The Salvation Army of Washington raised over $50,000 in the Red Kettle Campaign. This money helped the community through social service programs that assist those in need.

“The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign is a valued tradition in our community,” said Lieutenant Bush, Corps Officer of The Salvation Army of Washington, NC. “A little change from someone’s pocket keeps the lights on for struggling families, provides nutritious food for the hungry, and pays the rent when personal disaster strikes. A season of change can truly create a year of hope.”
