Craig Briefs: Salvation Army recruits Holiday bell ringers
Craig — The Craig Service Extension Unit of the Salvation Army is planning its annual Kettle Campaign for Moffat County. The campaign will run weekends starting Nov. 28 and include Christmas Eve.
Volunteers are needed to ring the bells at various locations in Craig. Shifts may be as short as one hour or as long as 4 hours.
All of the funds raised during the Craig Kettle Campaign remain in Moffat County to help residents throughout the year. Rent, utilities and medical needs are some of the areas where the Salvation Army helps people in need. Ten percent of the donations are added to an emergency fund that may only be used in Moffat County.
The Kettle Campaign is the only fundraising project that the Salvation Army does in Moffat County each year. The pennies, dimes and dollars dropped into the kettles help to keep up with the growing need for assistance in today’s economy.
The Craig Service Extension Unit volunteers work in coordination with Love INC to make sure that donations are used carefully where they will do the most good.
For details about the Salvation Army in Moffat County or to volunteer as a bell ringer, call Luann Kline at 970-824-5926.

Community photo submissions accepted
The Craig Daily Press welcomes photo submissions from community members. If you have cool photos you took while on vacation, camping or hunting, or even photos of your child’s birthday party, submit them to editor@CraigDailyPress.com.
Photos must be at lease 1 megabyte in size and clear, meaning blurry photos should not be submitted. Include the name of those in the photo along with the date and place where it was taken. The newspaper prefers recent and timely photos — for instance, if you have a photo of the fall colors, it’s timely since we’re currently in the fall season.
For details, call Daily Press Managing Editor Noelle Leavitt Riley at 970-875-1790.
Following the Memorial Day weekend, one of Moffat County’s signature events will be continuing into the summer.
