Salvation Army in ‘dire need’ of bell ringers

Local News

With about a week left, The Salvation Army is again asking for help ringing bells and filling kettles.

The Salvation Army said it was in “urgent need” of bell ringers as it works to raise funds for social services.

In a press release from earlier in December, The Salvation Army said its staff of bell ringers was extremely low and it was in dire need of ringers in both volunteer and paid positions.

Not much has changed in the days since.

“Without these ringers, we are unable to have as many bells throughout the community. Without bells throughout the community, we won’t be able to raise what we need to help those in need in our community in 2019. The need is critical,” the press release read.

You can volunteer to be a bell ringer at registertoring.org. Those in search of a paid position can visit The Salvation Army at 2901 N. Clinton St. in Fort Wayne.

The Salvation Army said those who ring a bell for two hours can raise enough money to feed a local family for one week.
