Salvation Army needs bell ringers, Angel Tree help

Salvation Army to assist families who lost everything in fire at Brookshire Townhomes

"We're just this week going to help 1,000 families with our angel tree program and we've filled up some spots so we can be sure these families can be served so they have a great Christmas", said Captain Andy Miller with The Salvation Army. "When it comes to Angel Tree (coverage), we are looking for slots to finish up our last week at the adoption center at The Towne Mall".

The Stu Eisner/ Salvation Army Christmas Food Hamper Campaign is a lot like our weather this past week, it is starting to heat up.

Last year, $147,000 was raised, surpassing the Salvation Army's goal of $140,000.

Displaying the Christmas spirit, the warehouse's owners provided the building to the Salvation Army free of charge, Campbell said. Volunteers are now gearing up for Distribution Day on Friday.

Cindy Sasser, a Salvation Army Volunteer says, "We went from cobwebs cleaning and bathroom cleaning to getting this incredible amount of the first load of stuff coming in and you can see just what the community has provided so far".

More than 730,000 Australians also know 10 or more families who will experience financial hardship this Christmas and about eight million believe the public is not doing enough to help the needy this festive season, showed the research from the group, which carries out an annual Christmas charity drive.

If you would like to be a bell ringer, there is still time. The ornaments list clothing sizes and a Christmas wish of each "angel".

Brian Hayes of Sherrills Ford said he happily volunteered for the effort. The food tags will be up through Christmas so there is still time.

"They wanted to do a good deed", Campbell said. Each food Angel Tree tag is $25.

"I want to see children being happy, waking up and seeing something from Santa Claus", she said.
