Education Briefs: Salvation Army seeks volunteer bell ringers

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

Bell ringers are needed at City Market, Walmart, and Murdoch’s in Craig during the holiday season, starting Nov. 25, through Christmas Eve. All donations are used locally to help our needy. Although the unemployment rate has dropped, the number of families living in poverty remains high. Families need help, and those who able to give will help their less fortunate neighbors. Volunteers can ring in pairs, and children are welcome. Ringers younger than 16 must have parental permission, or be accompanied by an adult.

Teams, club, groups, co-workers, families and individuals can sign up to ring by calling Mary Morris at 970-701-1315 or emailing
