St. Cloud Salvation Army's Christmas wish 200 More Bell Ringers Christmas is close, and dona- tions to the St. Cloud Salvation Army are down more than $10,000 compared to last year. In order for the St. Cloud Salvation Army to reach its 2010 Christmas Cam- paign goal of $165,000, an esti- mated 200 more bell ringers - each covering a four-hour shift - are needed between now and Christ- mas. "Bell ringing is a great way for individuals, families and groups to get involved in a fun Christmas activity that helps St. Cloud resi- dents in need," said Major Manuel Madrid, leader of the St. Cloud Sal- vation Army. Kettle donations and bell-ring- ing voluflteers have declined this year, presumably because of inclement weather. "We've had several days in which volunteers could nol~ be out- side because of the harsh temper- atures," Madrid said. "We deeply appreciate all of this year's bell ringers, and local residents for dropping money into our kettles." For more information about bell ringing, or to sign up, please call (320) 257-7423.
