The Salvation Army seeks 1,000 Volunteer Bell-Ringers for Its Red Kettle Campaign


If you are looking for a way to make your life more meaningful this holiday season, look no further.  The Salvation Army Dover Corps has just the solution – a day of bell ringing at one of its 24 locations throughout West Morris County.  Bell Ringers for The Salvation Army will once again take storefronts on November 22nd to help those individuals and families who are less fortunate during the holiday season and all year long. You too can play a small part in helping those less fortunate than yourself and at the same time start a new yearly tradition in the life of your own family, circle of friends, civic club or with your coworkers.  Volunteer to take a day of bell ringing for The Salvation Army.  Its fun and it only takes five teams of two ringing the bell for two hour shifts between the hours of 10:00 AM -8:00 PM. 

“After you’ve done it once you’ll be hooked and will want to do it again and again,” says Tammy Briggs, Public Relations Director for the Corps who has organized dozens of days of Bell Ringing herself for her church and her friends over the years. This year we need you.  Ninety five percent of volunteer bell ringers come back every year. You can take a day or even start with a half of a day; whatever works for your schedule. Night shifts are also available for those on a more limited time schedule.

Many businesses, civic clubs, individuals and families volunteer to keep the bell ringing.  24 locations are located throughout West Morris County.  Consider adopting a kettle for a day or for a few hours. The Red Kettle Campaign runs from November 22nd through December 24th.  Monday - Saturday from 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM.

Money raised from the kettles go to support over 300 families registered to receive Holiday Assistance through The Salvation Army’s Christmas Distribution Program which includes over 4,000 children and supports Salvation Army programs and services all year long.

By giving of your time or resources to the red kettle campaign, you will truly be on the receiving end.  You may never see the face of the person you helped but you can be assured that giving through The Salvation Army will restore the joy and confidence to those who truly need it most.  For more information call 973-366-0764, email  or visit our website at

To the Editor,
