Community briefs: Bell ringers needed, free Thanksgiving dinner, fundraiser for students

While greeting every passing customer, Donald Geddes rings the Salvation Army bell outside of Van’s Thriftway in 2014.

Thom Bridge Salvation Army Bell Ringers needed

This holiday season the need is greater than ever as more and more people in our community fall into poverty. Christmas is typically the time we raise the most money for our neighbors in need. Our red kettle bell ringers play an essential role in our ability to serve families and children this time of year.

Without the support of enough red kettle bell ringers there are many families and children who will lose their hope for a happy Christmas this year. 

Please consider volunteering in Helena to bring cheer and hope to others as a bell ringer; follow this link to sign up:, or contact: Major Brian West at 818-408-1023,
