Peoria area Salvation Army in need of volunteers

The Salvation Army needs your help this holiday season. They say they are doing well with mail-in donations, but they need bell ringers.

The Salvation Army tells us they have about 40 kettle sites in the Peoria tri-county area. Often times, many of those posts are left without ringers.

As the Director of Development, Rich Draeger said he has even received calls from shoppers asking why kettles are left unattended.

He reminds people that holiday donations go way beyond Christmas.

“It enables us to bring in money that helps us do programming throughout the year,” said Draeger, “so we really do call on people if they have a little extra time to volunteer or maybe if there are folks looking for a little part time work, certainly we would welcome their application as well.”
