Salvation Army looks for volunteers for Red Kettle Campaign


KINGSPORT, Tenn. - The Salvation Army is looking for volunteers for its Red Kettle Campaign. They hope to raise $340,000 across the Tri-Cities.

"Our objective is to raise the funds that we need to help families that need assistance at Christmas with food and toys and clothing in some cases," Major Joseph May said.

The Salvation Army is looking for groups like churches and businesses to divide up blocks of time. That way, each person would only have to volunteer an hour or two.

Only a small portion of shifts are covered so far. The Salvation Army will have to hire people to cover any shift not taken by a volunteer.

Ringers have been out in our area for almost two weeks. The national kickoff is tomorrow.
