Messenger employees volunteered to ring the Salvation Army bell today. We went out in pairs (or sometimes as a trio) to drum up donations for the army’s signature red kettle campaign.
Because bell-ringing coordinator Tana Fedric beats the bushes to find volunteers, all of the money collected helps those in Wise County. More than $26,000 was collected last year.
Anyone can participate including individuals, families, businesses, Sunday school classes, youth groups, community service organizations and athletic teams — to give only a handful of suggestions.
Time slots are available from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. through Dec. 24 and Tana recommends committing to a two-hour time slot.
Don’t just think about volunteering, go ahead and do it. Sure, you’ll wear out your bell-ringing arm, but you’ll be glad you did it.
E-mail Tana at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (940) 627-5859 to reserve your spot.
