Bell Ringers Return To Jackson Stores

November 27, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments
Salvation Army

The familiar Salvation Army bells will be heard outside Jackson area stores again beginning Friday as the local Salvation Army Chapter launches its annual Christmas fund-raiser.  Steve Kallin of the Rotary Luncheon Club is organizing this year’s event and has been recruiting bell-ringers to be on hand at each of four locations on the Friday’s and Saturdays between now and Christmas.  Kallin says the bell-ringers will be at four locations:  Albertson’s, K-Mart, Smiths and Whole Grocer.  However, Kallin says “We have a need, especially this first weekend for bell ringers both Friday and Saturday; and if you don’t have time to volunteer [as a] bell ringer, you can still support by donating at one of the red kettles.” As always, Kallin says funds raised in Jackson Hole remain in Jackson Hole to help those in need.  Last year, the Salvation Army Kettle campaign here raised just under $20,000 – still insufficient to cover all the needs seen in Teton County.  Kallin says anyone willing to ring a bell for a two-hour shift can sign up at RotaryJacksonHole.com
