Volunteer Army Needed This Christmas at The Salvation Army


Meridian, Miss ....... You can make miracles happen this Christmas season! How? Just volunteer with The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign and Angel Tree Program this holiday season.
Specific volunteer opportunities are:
· Angel Tree Workers - 11/23 through 12/8 (Bonita Lakes Mall, Citizens National bank, Rush Hospital, and Goody’s)

· Bell Ringers - 11/12 through 12/24

· Angel Tree distribution 12/19 through 12/21

It’s a great way to have fun with friends and get that warm feeling inside that comes from helping others. Money raised at Red Kettles helps provide food, clothing and other vital services to struggling people all year-round. The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree provides clothing and toys to needy children in our community each Christmas through the generosity of area residents. Angel Tree provides a hands on experience to make a direct impact in the lives of less fortunate families in east Mississippi.

Those wanting to serve from the warmth of their house can host an Online Red Kettle at www.onlineredkettle.org. All funds raised this Christmas will remain in Meridian to serve residents this Christmas and throughout the year.

Volunteer today and help create miracles for those in need here in our community. Call The Salvation Army at (601) 483-6156 to sign up today. For more information on how you can help this Christmas please visit www.salvationarmymeridian.org

Individuals and corporations interested in assisting The Salvation Army are asked to make monetary donations by calling 1- 800 SAL-ARMY or by visiting www.SalvationArmyUSA.org.
