Community Challenge Day on Dec. 10!
More volunteers needed to help bellring...
The Salvation Army's Branson Corps is in need of more volunteers to help during the Christmas season. Volunteers are especially needed to help bell ring at locations throughout Taney county.
"Volunteers fulfill a vital role in our organization," Major Norman Grainger, Ozark Area Coordinator said. "We undoubtedly could not help so many if it weren't for the kindness & generosity of volunteers."
Volunteer bellringers are needed Monday through Saturday at locations throughout Taney county including Walmart, Walgreens, Branson Landing and Dicks 5 & 10.
"Bellringing is a great volunteer opportunity for businesses, organizations, student & civic groups as well as families," Grainger said. "It's a wonderful way to give and help others in our community."
On Saturday December 10, community leaders with several Branson-area organizations such as Branson-Hollister Rotary, Branson Chamber of Commerce & the City of Hollister will volunteer their time to bellring at Walmart, Country Mart, Dicks 5 & 10 and Silver Dollar City.
The money and donations received at red kettle sites during The Salvation Army's Tree of Lights Campaign helps provide programs & services for local Ozarks residents all year long. Currently, The Salvation Army has reached approximately 35% of its Tree of Lights fundraising goal, which this year is $1,000,000.
"We just want to thank everyone who has donated so far this year," Grainger said. "And although we still have a very long way to go, we hope that the Ozarks community will, once again, be generous in helping The Salvation Army reach its goal, which ultimately helps us help others."
