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.
