Salvation Army in Auburn seeks holiday bell ringers

Zanesville, Ohio- Yesterday, members of The Salvation Army gathered together to host their annual Red Kettle holiday fundraiser.

Through the Angel Tree program, individuals, families and businesses can "adopt" a child or senior citizen by purchasing items from their list of needs and requested gifts. Volunteer bell ringers will be collecting donations through December 31, and the money raised will assist families in Marion, Ralls, Lewis, Monroe and Shelby counties with utilities, rent, medicine and transportation. So we're just a kick off to get it started.

The Salvation Army is accepting applications at their Toledo headquarters from 9:00 - 11:00 am and then again from 1:00 - 3:00 pm on Wednesday.

The 2016 Tree of Lights campaign ended by raising $103,412, making it the second year in a row the organization had exceeded its goal.

The familiar red kettle and cheery bell has been a long time staple around the holidays, with bell ringers starting around Black Friday and continuing through Christmas Eve.

Members of the Salvation Army hope this year more and more people will donate in support of those in need.
