Norman County Salvation Army Look for Bell Ringers
Ada, MN — The Norman County Salvation Army recently kicked off their annual Red Kettle campaign and those kettles can now be found scattered around the county at a number of supporting businesses. In addition to the stationary kettles, the Norman County Salvation Army will be bringing back their bell ringing on select dates during the Holiday season, including community festivals and even a few sporting events this year. But to do that they will need help from the community to take an hour or so out of their day to volunteer as bell ringers. Cody Kill and Aimee Eggen with the Norman County Salvation Army says bell ringing is an effective way to get people to drop some change or dollar bills in the kettle.
The goal this year again for the Norman County Salvation Army is to raise $6,500 through their kettle campaign, which sets their budget for the following year. Kill says the more money they can raise, the greater impact they will have.
The pandemic has brought forth some challenges and changes for the local Salvation Army, including the types of needs they were addressing. Kill says much of their assistance went to local food shelves and utility assistance.
If you are interested in volunteering your time as a bell ringer, please call or text Aimee at 218-474-0022 to schedule a time.
