The Salvation Army is, once again, sounding the bell, so to speak, that they are short of volunteers.
They need more people to ring the bell for their annual Red Kettle campaign. Lt. Wayne Benedict with the Elkhart Salvation Army says this is the most dire year, ever, for the need, with more than 1,900 hours to fill before Christmas.
The annual Red Kettle Campaign is essential for the organization to fulfill its mission.
Benedict tells The Elkhart Truth that their collection goal is just $50-thosuand dollars, which is half of what it was, last year, because they knew they’d have trouble getting volunteers.
