Chaffee County Salvation Army Seeks Volunteers for Kettle Bell Ringing Season

Individuals and teams of volunteers are needed for the Salvation Army’s annual effort to raise funds to help local residents in need.

The bell ringing campaign takes place at Walmart in Salida and at City Market in Buena Vista between November 25th and December 24th.

Money collected locally stays local to help those in need in Chaffee County. Ten percent of the funds raised are kept by the parent organization and ninety percent are used directly to help Chaffee County residents. Donations may help keep a roof over the heads of a family who have hit upon hard times or keep the gas and electricity on when payments become past due. Assistance is also available to help with medical and dental procedures or other special situations.

Over $20,000 was raised last year. Chaffee County intends to surpass that figure in 2023 with the help of more community volunteers.
