Salvation Army seeks volunteers for ‘Red Kettle’ drive

Ricky and Dawn Villanueva rang the bell for the Salvation Army at Coborn’s in Glencoe on Tuesday, Nov. 21. The Red Kettle campaign will continue at Coborn’s throughout the holiday season.

The Salvation Army is seeking volunteers for its annual “Red Kettle” campaign.
Locally, the Salvation Army is looking for volunteers for the red kettle at Coborn’s in Glencoe. Coborn’s is located at 2211 11th St. E. The campaign started last week and will continue through the holiday season.
The Glencoe Rotary Club volunteers each year, said local organizer Rita Weber, while many other organizations, groups and individuals have volunteered in the past.
People can volunteer as a family, and organizations such as youth groups, community service groups, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, church groups, and others are encouraged to volunteer.
The Salvation Army in McLeod County provides year-round service to those in need because of emergencies.
In addition, the Salvation Army provides summer camping experiences, disaster services, visits to the elderly, back-to-school projects and more.
Because of cuts in federal and state programs, the Salvation Army relies more and more on the proceeds from its red kettles to continue to maintain its programs.
Anyone interested in volunteering as a bell ringer may contact Weber at 320-864-6657 or 320-296-0130, by email at ritaweb@centurylink.net, or contact her through Facebook by searching for Rita Weber.
