Salvation Army bell ringing campaign begins

Posted: Updated:

Lawton_You're going to start seeing those red kettles and hearing the bells all over town starting Friday.

The Salvation Army has officially kicked off its bell ringing season. Every year, the organization posts a bell ringer and a donation kettle outside some of the more popular shopping destinations.

Captain Ernest Hull says the small amount of change each donor gives can make a huge difference to someone in need.

"Hungry mouths are fed, homeless are housed and those who need our services are able to access those because of the change people put in," Captain Hull said.

Hull says the holidays are the time of year that people have the greatest amount of need, and the Salvation Army encourages the community to give any amount to the kettles.
