Salvation Army bell ringers collecting donations around Kalamazoo

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- It's that time of year again. Time for the Salvation Army to station its bell ringers at area businesses. The Salvation Army of Kalamazoo's Major Keith Welch says that this year's campaign to raise money for the needy is underway. It'll really pick up after Thanksgiving, though.

While you're out shopping for the next month or so, you'll see Salvation Army volunteers ringing bells, and some of them could have the organization's new mascot on hand. He's Captain Kettle, and he'll be rotated around different bell ringer locations.

Welch says that the fundraising goal this year is 500 thousand dollars, roughly what was raised last year. To find out about volunteering to help, you can go to www.TSAKalamazoo.org .
