This season ring the bell for the Salvation Army

Starting Monday, the Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle Campaign will ring bells at various Oconee County locations to donate to the cause of helping those in need. And tomorrow the campaign officially kicks off with festivities at the Belk of Seneca. Most Salvation Army bell ringers are volunteer members of the community and they take up positions at the front of many of Oconee’s best stores to make it easy for shoppers to empty their pockets of loose change or, in some instances, dollar bills and the like. Debra Andrews directs the Oconee County Service Center for the Salvation Army and she gave 101.7/WGOG NEWS a long list of services her organization provides the community. They include clothing, food, and utility assistance and service those home fire victims referred by the American Red Cross.
