We just covered an article about the history of the Salvation Army as well as the history of their famous red kettlebells but it turns out the Victoria Salvation Army has opportunities for us to bring in the holiday season and raise money for the Salvation Army together!

We are in! Are you in? Let's ring in the holidays together Victoria! 

In a recent press release from the Salvation Army in Victoria, there are ample opportunities for you to be a part of the cheer as a volunteer.

The Salvation Army needs volunteer bell ringers from November 16th to December 24th, 2020, from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.


“This year, signing up and volunteering as a bell ringer is easier than ever!” said Captain Jones of The Salvation Army. “Go to www.RegisterToRing.com and simply select the location, date, and time you would like to ring!

You can split a shift with a friend or sign up as a group. Individuals, families, groups of friends or co-workers, and church groups are welcome.”

Get your company together like we are doing at Townsquare Media and go together! 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in addition to the implementation of basic safety procedures, all bell ringers will also be provided with daily PPE safety kits including a branded mask, disposable gloves, apron, and disinfectant. Strict safety protocols have been developed ensuring the health and safety of all potential donors and bell ringers.

Here are two other ways you can be a part of the cheer when you volunteer;

Volunteer to Support the Angel Tree Program -The Salvation Army will provide gifts for more than 250 children this year. They are seeking volunteers to help manage Angel Tree locations and later help sort and distribute gifts to program participants.

Volunteer to Serve Holidays Meals- Our Salvation Army has served Thanksgiving and Christmas meals to approximately 300 families in the past. They are seeking approximately 15 volunteers to sign up for 2 - 3 hours for each of the holiday meals.

"The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in heightened need and demand for shelter and meals. Safety protocols are in place in all Salvation Army buildings, and volunteers will be requested to adhere to established program procedures." The press release offers.

Call The Salvation Army in Victoria at (361) 576-1297 if you are interested in any of these opportunities, please.
