The Waynesville Salvation Army is looking for volunteers – individuals and groups – in Jackson County to ring bells at the Red Kettle locations this Christmas season.

The Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign is a critical fundraiser for the organization’s Christmas assistance and year-round programs that address social concerns in the community. This year the needs are greater than ever.

Volunteer opportunities in Jackson County run from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. through Christmas Eve. To volunteer, call Major Susie Graf at 450-0888. COVID-19 guidelines have been established and are to be followed. Applications are also being taken for paid bell ringer positions. Contact Graf for details.

Funds raised during the holidays assist needy families with winter relief such as heaters, utility and rent assistance, as well as food and clothing.
