Salvation Army ‘Feed the Need’ event starts

The Salvation Army in Helena has kicked off its annual “Feed the Need” fundraising event to support its Transitional Living Housing and Ground Zero Men’s and Women’s Sober Living Homes, food pantry, social service programs and gym programs.

The Salvation Army kicked off its annual Red Kettle Season on Nov. 2, introducing the new Register to Ring program that allows volunteers to sign up to ring bells at the time and place of their choice throughout the season.

Christmas is typically the time the corps raises the most money for the needy. The red kettle bell ringers play an essential role in serving families and children this time of year. Volunteers are needed to ring bells Nov. 15-Dec. 23. Sign up at registertoring.com.
