The Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Bell Ringing began yesterday, Wednesday, November 24, 2010 at Columbia IGA. Beginning Friday, November, 26, 2010, bell ringing will take place at Columbia Walmart.

Bell Ringing is conducted by community volunteers just like you. If you or your group or organization would like to 'ring the bell' to help those in our community when help is needed most, just call Ellen Zornes at (270) 384-3400.

Our major fundraising activity is our Christmas Kettle where community people have always been so gracious to participate, by ringing the bell and by dropping your donation in the kettle. We need you once again!

You can be the difference in the life of a child by helping provide a week of summer camp, a warm coat for winter, school supplies, ensuring all children have a merry Christmas, helping a senior adult have the necessities, or be the difference for your neighbor when help is needed most as after a house fire, or tornado, yes, you can make that difference by simply dropping your donation in the familiar red, or blue, kettle.

Or, send your donation to:
The Salvation Army
P.O. Box 1085
Columbia, KY 42728
