Salvation Army looking for bellringers as holidays draw nearer

CLEVELAND - The bells have started ringing for the annual Salvation Army holiday kettle kick-off that marks the start of the holiday season.

This year the Salvation Army has set a goal to raise $730,000 that will be used to support after-school activities for children, food and shelter programs and holiday assistance for local families with children.

The annual red bell kettles have been used since 1891 to provide assistance to people in need and is one of the longest-running and recognizable charitable campaigns, according to a Salvation Army spokesperson.

Anyone wanting to volunteer to become a bellringer or sponsor a kettle can find more information at the Salvation Army's website.
