It’s Beginning to Sound a Lot Like Christmas
As much as tinsel and candy canes, the familiar ringing of Salvation Army bells outside of the grocery store has become a holiday tradition. No doubt you recognize the familiar red aprons and red kettles, along with the cheerful sound of a ringing bell.
From November 8th through December 24th, volunteers will be out collecting funds for the Salvation Army.
Funds donated to the Salvation Army go to support their various community-serving programs, like housing assistance and food shelves. The Salvation Army does all that they can to help the community in times of need. Their motto is “Doing the most good” with good reason.
Ringing the Bell for a Great Cause
Volunteers can sign up to ring the Salvation Army bell in shifts of two or more hours at a time. This year, Dimmitt Automotive signed up and collected funds on December 10th for five hours. It was great fun, and even greater to see a full kettle at the end of the evening. It was truly heartwarming to see parents teaching their young children how to donate.
Thank you to everyone who came out to volunteer, and thank you to our friends within the community who donated and made our night a success!
