THE SALVATION ARMY TO RING IN CHRISTMAS SEASON WITH THE FIRST DAY OF KETTLES
The familiar sights and sounds of red kettles and bells will soon return as The Salvation Army Quincy Area Command begins its first day of fundraising in Quincy and Hannibal on Friday and Saturday, November 5-6 for the 2021 Christmas campaign. Kettles will resume full-time for the duration of the season Monday-Saturday in Hannibal and Quincy beginning November 12 and ending on December 24.
With multiple locations across the tri-states hosting a red kettle, now is a great time for you, your group (limit two people per kettle per shift), or organization to volunteer as a Salvation Army bell ringer. Those interested are encouraged to register online at RegisterToRing.com or contact Volunteer Coordinator Jeremy Koren by calling 217-231-5633 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, volunteers are being asked to follow masking guidance from the county health department while ringing.
Funds raised from the red kettles remain local to support The Salvation Army and the services we provide such as holiday meals and toys, shelter for the homeless, job assistance, and more.
The Salvation Army provides a variety of programs and services to assist families in need in the counties of Adams, Brown, and Pike in Illinois and the counties of Marion, Ralls, Lewis, Monroe, and Shelby in Missouri. For more information, please contact Jeremy Koren at 217-231-5633.
