Salvation Army Kettles Out One More Weekend

Salvation Army

The last of the four weekends that Salvation Army Bell Ringers will be out in Jackson Hole this year is coming up.  Kettle coordinator Steve Kallin says giving has been strong, but there is still a long way to go as efforts continue to raise money to help those in need around the valley.  Kallin says, “We’re a little ahead of last year’s pace, but the unfortunate thing is we have a shorter season this year just due to the calendar.”  He says the total is currently around $11,000 and they are striving to hit $20,000 to meet local needs. Kallin says twelve more volunteers are still needed to ring the bells on Friday and Saturday.  Those kettles are set up in front of Jackson Whole Grocer, Albertsons, K-Mart and Smiths Foods. Meanwhile, he says a number of businesses in the community have counter kettles placed near the cash registers. Kallin reminds those passing by one of those familiar red kettles that all that is collected in Jackson Hole remains in the community to provide for local residents in need.
