Kettle Drive starting soon

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

The Salvation Army of Clay County will conduct a Salvation Army Bell Ringer Kick-off at 7 p.m., Monday, Oct. 20.

The event will take place at the Serving on the Streets office, 100 N. Forest Ave., Brazil, one block north of United States 40 and State Road 59.

Those interested in attending and volunteering will be provided with Christmas cookies and appetizers at the meeting.

Also at the meeting, those attending may sign up or volunteer to be a Kettle Bell Ringer, get helpful information and tips on how to have a successful bell ringing experience and receive some Salvation Army gear.

The kettle drive will be conducted between Friday, Nov. 28 and Wednesday, Dec. 24. Kettles will be located at Wal-Mart, Kroger and Page's in Brazil.

The local Salvation Army is seeking at least 54 groups or individuals to volunteer to ring the bell this year. Groups may consist of family, friends, school groups, scouting groups, 4-H clubs, homemaker clubs, sport teams, community groups, youth groups, Sunday School classes, etc.

The group that raises the most donated money will be awarded a pizza party in January 2009 through the local Salvation Army.

More than 90 percent of the local money raised stays in the Clay County community. That money goes to help those in need by supplying food, gas, help with utility bills, a place to stay, schools supplies and shoes for children.

The local organization has set a goal of raising $15,000 this year.

For more information, contact Jodi Lohrman at 443-3003.
