The Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign in Marshall County is preparing to kick off this year. Bell ringers will be out in front of Wal-Mart ringing the familiar bells hoping folks will drop in a few dollars or their spare change to help those less fortunate during 2020-2021.
Funds collected will remain in our community to help families who struggle financially throughout the whole year. The Marshall County Salvation Army Service is a United Way Agency and is thankful that Wal-Mart and Kroger support their efforts to raise these much needed funds. This year Wal-Mart has graciously offered for customers to round up their total point of sale to the nearest dollar with proceeds being donated to the Salvation Army.
Doug Kucera, Salvation Army Director in Marshall County said, “Giving has always been good in our county but I’m still in need of bell ringers.” Bell ringers will work both sets of doors for 2-3 hours. If enough volunteers come forth bell ringers will also be placed at Kroger’s.
To be a volunteer bell ringer, contact Doug Kucera at 574-540-9105 or stop by Uncle Doug’s Barber Shop across the street from the Plymouth Fire Station. Two or more hour shifts are preferable and he is willing to accommodate anybody’s schedule.
