Salvation Army needs bell ringers for local Red Kettle campaign

The Red Kettle Campaign funds local Salvation Army services all year long.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — If you shop during the holidays, you've probably seen Salvation Army bell-ringers in front of many stores. Now, the Salvation Army needs more volunteers.

The annual Red Kettle Campaign is the Salvation Army of Huntsville's main fundraiser and it takes a lot of bell ringers to make it happen. They depend on both volunteer and paid bell ringers and as of now, they're low on both. A representative with the group says that many volunteer groups they worked with in the past are still not active like they were prior to COVID, and they need help to fill that void.

Any interested in working can apply in person at 2114 Oakwood Ave in Huntsville. Those interested in volunteering can contact our main office at 256-536-5576 or email Tiffany.Mujica@uss.salvationarmy.org.

There are many locations throughout Madison county that you can volunteer at including Walmart, Sams, Hobby Lobby, Kroger, and more.

There's also a virtual option that people can use to donate or create their own "kettle" to collect donations.

The Salvation Army of Huntsville says:

"This year many people are hurting and in need of our help. We are in need of your help to be able to provide for others. Together we can remind people that “Hope Marches On.”

Donations can be made in person or online.
