Salvation Army seeks bell-ringers
The Salvation Army of the High Country seeks seasonal workers
to serve as bell-ringers for its Red Kettle Campaign during the busy holiday season.
Those who are interested in being a Red Kettle bell-ringer must complete an application at local The Salvation Army Outpost, located at 719-A Greenway Road, Suite 100, in Boone.
Individuals applying for a position must show a valid State-issued picture identification card, as well as a Social Security card. The job will run from Nov. 16 through Dec. 24, 2012.
“The Red Kettle is a significant fundraiser for The Salvation Army, and we need the help of our community,” Lt. Michal Chapman said. “We are always seeking volunteers throughout the year, as well.”
According to The Salvation Army, money raised from the group’s Red Kettle Campaign in the High Country will go toward rent, fuel oil, kerosene, electricity, water and natural gas to qualified residents of Watauga and Avery counties.
The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign raised $147.6 million in 2011 nationally.
