 November 21, 2016 - Dauphin County’s Northern Dauphin Human Services Center seeks volunteer bell ringers for Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign

ELIZABETHVILLE, PA (November 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.”

“Volunteering may seem like a small gesture, but it has a big impact in our county,” said Chairman Jeff Haste. “Every dollar collected at these locations will stay here and fund programs that help families in northern Dauphin County.”

For questions or more information, please call Bonnie Kent at 717-905-2700.

“Volunteering is one of the greatest ways you can give back to your community,” said Commissioner Mike Pries. “We’re proud to partner with the Salvation Army to help those who need it most.”

Since 1891, the Red Kettle Campaign has raised money during the holiday season for Salvation Army programs. To learn more, visit www.salvationarmyusa.org.
