JAMESTOWN, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – The Jamestown Salvation Army is in the middle of their largest fundraiser this holiday season, but are currently in dire need of more volunteer bell ringers.
The lack of volunteers during the annual Red Kettle Campaign has left many stations in parts of Jamestown empty, hurting the donation numbers for the Salvation Army. Major Tim Nauta reports that the funds they raise during this time go on to provide their services in 2018.
Nauta says that lowering their goal to $140,000 this year will hopefully allow them to reach it more easily.
Nauta says if you see a red kettle and a bell ringer, consider throwing in some loose change or a couple of dollars that will go on to help the people of Stutsman County. Nauta says some individuals may not know how much the Salvation Army does. He says in 2017 so far, they’ve helped a lot more than some think.
The Salvation Army is always looking for bell ringers. Residents, businesses, organizations and more can volunteer to ring bells at the six different locations in Jamestown. To register, visit registertoring.com, call the Jamestown Salvation Army at 701-252-0290 or visit their office at 320 1st Avenue North.
