Salvation Army Still Seeks Ringers

Salvation Army

Salvation Army bells are heard only on weekends in Jackson, even though the need is just as keen as it is in the rest of the country where Salvation Army Bell Ringers are on the streets all week long though the holiday season.  The trick is to have enough volunteers toman those familiar red kettles, and coordinator Tom Holland says there are almost enough to provide a weekend presence through the season.  Holland says the bells are heard from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays at Whole Foods, Albertsons, K-Mart, and Smiths Foods.  Holland says anyone wishing to volunteer would be welcomed to help fill slots later in the season.  Holland reiterates that all the money collected in Teton County stays in the county – and he says last year’s collection of dollars, quarters, dimes and nickels totaled slightly more than $21-thousand.   He says even when the bell ringers are not out, residents will find counter kettles at the check-outs of many stores and restaurants in the community.  Holland points out that these are still very tough times for many families here, and even the contribution of spare change from enough people adds up to do a lot of good.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
