The Salvation Army - Niles


It's that time of year again.  It time for our 2017 RED KETTLE CAMPAIGN!  We are starting our bell ringing at sites throughout, Niles, Buchanan, Berrien Springs, and Dowagiac on Friday, November 10th and will ring until Saturday, December 23rd.  We will be ringing Monday through Saturday from 10am till 7pm, depending on the site.  We will generally scheduling individuals in 2 hour shifts.  We are looking forward to one of our best seasons ever with expanded bell ringing sites, so give us a call and get your name on the list.

Please remember that all the ringing sites in the world will do us no good, if we do not have volunteers to ring the bells at those site.  We encourage individuals, groups, clubs, organizations and churches to help us raise the funds needed to allow us to continue in assisting those in need in our community. 

Remember that all funds raised in this campaign stay at our local area.  This is how we raise our operational budget for the coming year, so get on board now!  You don't need to give a lot of time,  but any time would be appreciated.

Give Tim, our Coordinator of Volunteer Services a call - 269.684.2660
