2016 Salvation Army Bell Ringing Campaign
What would the holidays be like without bells?? Let’s not find out – please come and RING!! We are excited to give you the opportunity to add to the Christmas spirit and raise important dollars for the Vermillion Emergency Fund. The good news is that more and more people are getting involved and there is a wonderful chance for you to help raise funds through our annual bell-ringing campaign!! We hope that all of you will contribute whenever you pass one of our kettles, but perhaps you and your family and friends could donate a couple of hours to ring bells this season. We need one or two ringers (or a whole family!!) at each of our stations around Vermillion (Wal-Mart, Hy-Vee and Ace) on weekends and some evenings. We start the campaign Friday, November 25th and run through Saturday, December 31. Every moment of bell-ringing translates into the possibility of real help for one of your neighbors.

Volunteering is easy. You can pick up the bells, coin collection bucket, and Salvation Army aprons and hats at the customer service desk of the respective business (unless you get it from the previous group). The stands should be by the door. When the time interval is completed please return the items to the customer service center (or pass it on to the next group.) Please be both festive and WARM in your choice of attire!!
