Salvation Army is falling short of its red kettle goal and needs bell ringers

The Salvation Army of Warren, Page, Rappahannock, and parts of Shenandoah Counties is approximately 55 percent short of their $40,000 goal so far this season.

Captain Ann Hawk of the regional Salvation Army reports the shortfall.

Largely the shortfall is due to the lack of bell ringers at the red kettle locations.

Hawk explains that without bell ringers there are no kettles available to add to the funds.

There are open availabilities to ring bells the last 7 days of the collection season.
