Volunteers needed at the Salvation Army, once again

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.

For more information about donating, or to volunteer, call the Elkhart Salvation Army at 574-970-0088.

It seems that pushing CRT on your donors and volunteers isn’t a very good idea. The Salvation Army will never get another penny from me, and I sincerely hope they collapse into the dustbin of history.

Salvation Army needs to stop with bell ringing right by the entrances/exits at stores! Its very annoying and just pushes people away. Its not like you cant see them standing there.

Go peddle your wokestanie CRT agenda somewhere else. If you want to donate this Christmas there ate THOUSANDS of worthy charities and local churches to donate to. The Salvation Army has lost my respect. Remember those bell ringers are volunteers so do not abuse them. Just smile and walk into or out of the store.
