Salvation Army seeks Red Kettle volunteers

TICONDEROGA - The Salvation Army is seeking volunteer bell ringers for its Red Kettle campaign in Ticonderoga.

The Red Kettles have become a tradition throughout the United States, raising money to assist the less fortunate.

Glen Buell is the site coordinator for the Ticonderoga Service Unit. He's looking for volunteers to stand by the kettles on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from Thanksgiving through Christmas Eve.

Companies, organizations, schools and individuals can sign up as volunteers.

"I would like to schedule Bell Ringers in 1-2 hour time slots from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day," Buell said.

"Have you ever asked yourself what can I do to help someone this holiday season?" Buell asked. "Have you been searching for something to get you into the Christmas spirit? Have you ever wanted to be one of those bell ringers for the Salvation Army? Why not get involved this year."

People interested in volunteering can call Buell at 597-3222.

Anyone who needs assistance can call that same number.

"If you have a friendly face, you don't mind being out in the cold for an hour or two, and you would like to do something to benefit your community this holiday season then consider becoming a volunteer bell ringer for the Salvation Army," Buell said.
