Help The Salvation Army create memories this holiday season 
   For most, early November is the start of their holiday season; Thoughts of family gatherings to include turkey and cranberry sauce, shopping followed by gift wrapping and creating memories to last a life time. 
    At The Salvation Army we also begin thinking of turkey and cranberry sauce, shopping and gift wrapping to begin the holiday season. However at The Salvation Army, the beginning of November also includes Red Kettles and the glorious sound of ringing bells all to create memories of hope and joy for struggling families in Livingston County.      Each year The Salvation Army of Livingston County rings bells outside of Walmart and Kroger, VG’s and Walgreens and many other locations. As shoppers go in and out of the stores, they pass the sounds of laughter from children of all ages, adults with smiling faces and welcoming greetings and the feeling of love and hope that each kettle brings. 
    The Salvation Army cannot do it alone and are asking for your help. With a little over 5400 hours of bell ringing still remaining this November and December, we are asking you to add The Salvation Army Bell Ringing to your holiday “to do” list. Help create memories that will last a life time, not only for you and your family, but for others that need a little hope this year. 
      Anyone interested in volunteering to bell ring and not able to stop in may sign up online, Organizations wishing to take an entire day of bell ringing at one or several locations should contact Liz Welch directly 517-295-4347.      Donations accepted via mail The Salvation Army P.O.
