Salvation Army Kettles Complete First Week In Jackson

December 5, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments
Salvation Army

The first weekend for the Salvation Army bell-ringers was profitable, but still lagged last year’s first week of giving.  Kettle coordinator Steve Kallin says about 40 volunteers participated in the effort which manned kettles in front of the town’s three grocery stores and K-mart.  Kallin says it is hoped to raise more money than was collected last year since the total donated did not meet the needs of the valley.  Kallin says approximately $20,000 was raised and he anticipates that the need is at least that much or more this year.  Kallin says there are still about 14 hours needed to fill for bell-ringers on Saturday, and people can go to rotaryjacksonhole.com to sign up for a shift.  Kallin says several businesses and organizations have volunteered groups of people to fill a block of time as bell-ringers over the next few weeks.  He suggests those hosting a Christmas bazaar or festival might also consider having a kettle at their venue. Says Kallin: “We’ve already had the Boy Scouts take a kettle to the lighting ceremony at the square last Friday – so that was a new effort that was initiated by Scout leader David Watson.  Those are opportunities if someone is interested, we can work with them to try to make that happen as well.  Kettles will be out in front of Jackson stores on Fridays and Saturdays for the next three weeks.  Donations may also be made to counter kettles at various stores through the season.
