Salvation Army seeks local bell ringers and contributions


Fri, Dec 7th, 2012
Posted in Preston Business Announcements

Salvation Army kettle season is right around the corner in Preston. You’ll find the kettle and bell ringers in Preston on Wednesday, December 19 at the F&M Bank corner from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and from 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. in front of Preston Foods.

If you, your family or your group, would like to participate as ringers, half hour shifts are available. To schedule a time, you can contact Barb Scheevel at scheevel77@gmail.com or at (507)765-4948.

Fillmore County’s Salvation Army budget is based on what is collected in the Fillmore County kettles, so it’s important to donate locally if you want to help your neighbors in need. Money donated in other counties, in the Rochester kettles or sent in the envelope you receive in the mail, will be part of those counties’ budgets and not be available to Fillmore County residents. If you would like to donate, but are not able to stop by a Fillmore County kettle, financial contributions can be dropped off anytime with Tammy Simonson at F&M Community Bank in Preston.

For questions or more information, contact Preston’s Salvation Army Kettle Drive Coordinators: Sheila Craig, Barb Scheevel, Sue Hovey or Nancy Byrne.
