KSAL Staff - Fri 03:27 PM 11/09/2012
Bell Ringers and red kettles are set up this year at multiple locations throughout Salina. Volunteers will be collecting donations through December 24th.
A sure sign of the holiday season are those bell ringers in front of red kettles at area businesses. The 2012 Salina Salvation Army's Kettle Campaign begins today.
Roxanne Matous from the Salina Salvation Army tells KSAL News that this year there are kettles set up at 21 locations, collecting donations through December 24th.
The Kettle Campaign is the organization's single largest fund raiser of the year. The goal this year is to collect $120,000. Matous says that there are more local families in need this year.
Volunteer bell ringers are still needed. Anyone willing to help is asked to contact the Salina Salvation Army at 785-823-2251.
Salina Media Group volunteers will be ringing the bell at Walmart in Salina all day on Friday, November 30th.
