The Salvation Army needs bell ringers. Can you help us get the word out to your college community?

If you want to do something special for someone else this holiday season, try ringing the bells for the Salvation Army, please. It’s a great group activity! Bring some good holiday CD’s, bundle up, enjoy the friends and the people. Great sorority/fraternity project.

Tell your friends everywhere. There’s a Salvation ARmy near you and them!
