Ringing the Bells for the Salvation Army
November 27, 2020
Third-graders will be "Ringing the Bells" for the Salvation Army and collecting money during morning drop-off the week of Monday, November 30th through Friday, December 4th.
The sound of the Salvation Army bell ringing is not just the sound of the bell, it's the sound of helping others in need. For many years, Mrs. Jane Brown's annual third-grade class December community service project has had students volunteering for an afternoon of bell ringing and singing at multiple Salvation Army of Des Moines Red Kettle locations within our community. The students and parent volunteers have spread festive cheer, hope, and helped make a difference during the holiday season. This year with the Covid-19 pandemic, Mrs. Brown's class is bringing the ringing for the red kettles to St. Augustin Catholic School. Third-graders will be "Ringing the Bells" for the Salvation Army and collecting money during morning drop-off the week of Monday, November 30th through Friday, December 4th.
We are very proud of our students’ dedication to serving the community and would especially like to thank all that contribute in advance for their monetary donations. Your support enables us to help those in need and preserve Mrs. Brown's long-standing third-grade tradition of bell ringing for the Red Kettle Christmas Campaign.
A Little Change Goes A Long Way
Each November through Christmas Eve, the Salvation Army collects donations through its Red Kettle Campaign in the community and online. Volunteers ring bells near the kettles in hopes that passersby will open their hearts and pocketbooks to contribute a donation to be used to help those in need when they need it most.
