CLEVELAND — The Salvation Army is heading into its final week of the red kettle charity campaign and is looking for volunteers to help raise funds.

Bell ringers are needed to volunteer outside local retailers such as Walmart, Giant Eagle and Discount Drug Mart.

The Salvation Army said that volunteers are crucial to the campaign and that every two hours a volunteer stands at a red kettle and rings the bell, up to 104 meals can be paid for to distribute to local communities in need.

“The Salvation Army is asking our community for their continued support. Help us ring the bell to keep food pantries open and hot meals served to our local neighbors in need. The red kettles fund these essential programs that support hundreds of thousands of Northeast and Northwest Ohioans each year,” said Major Cindy-Lou Drummond, Divisional Commander of The Salvation Army of Northeast Ohio, in a press release.

The Salvation Army is offering Apple and Google Pay at the red kettle stands, and, new this year, those donating will be able to give via PayPal and Venmo. Donations can also be made online.
