21, 2016) – To raise funds for programs benefiting families in northern Dauphin
County, the county’s Northern Dauphin Human Services Center (NDHSC) is taking
part in the annual Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign. Volunteer bell ringers
are needed for three-hour shifts between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Fridays and
Saturdays from November 25 to December 17 at two locations in northern Dauphin
County: 1) Boyer’s Food Market, 672 Main St., in Lykens and 2) Walmart, 200
Kocher Ln., in Elizabethville.
“The Salvation Army provides food for the
hungry, shelter for the homeless and programs for at-risk youth in our
community,” said Commissioner George P. Hartwick, III, who has oversight of the
county’s Human Services Department and the NDHSC. “By volunteering your
time to collect donations, you can help these vital programs continue.”

collected at these locations will stay here and fund programs that help families
in northern Dauphin County.”

partner with the Salvation Army to help those who need it most.”
