Itâ??s that time of year when the Salvation Army bell ringers are at it again. And in Iron Mountain, they kicked off the Dickinson County Kettle Campaign this past weekend. The distinct red kettle is a symbol of the Salvation Army and its efforts to collect donated money for those in need. All of the money is kept in the county where it was donated. Coordinators of the Dickinson County Kettle Campaign said they're always looking for volunteers to help out with their efforts.
â??The biggest thing is we try to look for two-hour increments, so it starts at 10; so from like 10 to 12, and we go all the way until eight, eight o'clock at night,â?? said coordinator, Chris Rockafellow. â??We have a lot of groups that do it, too, so we have some groups that take a whole day up, so that really helps, too.â??
If youâ??re interested in donating your time as a bell ringer, contact Chris and his wife, Nicole, at (906) 396-1720. You can also visit the Salvation Army Dickinson County Facebook page here.
