During this joyous time of year, many of our neighbors are experiencing need. The Salvation Army needs your help to assist our community. Please consider sharing your time, talents and treasures to help. Here are some ways you could share your time:

The Red Kettle Campaign

One of the most important volunteer opportunities during the holiday season are people to tend our Red Kettle locations. Volunteers can ring a bell, sing hymns and Christmas carols, or play a musical instrument while at the kettle side (click here for bellringer guidelines). There are 60 locations throughout Lee County (click here to see a list of those sites), and sites in Hendry and Glades counties as well. Kettle season starts on November 18 and runs through December 24. To schedule, please call as soon as possible:

Lee County - Kathy (239) 278-1551 ext 210
Hendry County - Angie (863) 674-1441

At Toyland, toys and food are distributed to the head of household for each family in need. Volunteers are needed to assist the moms and dads to select the toys and gifts for their children, to help with check out, to assist with food packages and help load cars as well as help with registration. Large groups are welcome as we need more than 100 volunteers each day. While we will start set up in early December, the days requiring extra help are December 14 - 20.

Please check your calendars for availability, and call Kris Volpone at (239) 278-1551 ext. 219 or email her
