The Salvation Army Needs You



Text Size

To the Editor:

It is that time of year again when the local unit of the Salvation Army will be setting up kettles and ringing the bells to raise money for our friends and neighbors in Newtown that need our assistance. The money raised from donations to the kettle go to help pay for food, heat and utility bills, auto expenses to get to job interviews, medical expenses, and rent or mortgage payments for those who are struggling to make ends meet.

How can you help? We need bell ringers on December 6th and 7th and December 13th and 14th. If you can donate one hour of your time, please contact Anna Wiedemann at aroosterw@yahoo.com or at 203-417-3004, as soon as possible.

This year, we are also using Sign Up Genius, and that can be accessed at bit.ly/newtownbellringer. We would also like to put a call out to anyone that is interested in joining the board of the local Salvation Army Unit. We meet two to three times per year to organize the bell ringing, so it is not a big time commitment.

Lastly, when you see our kettles around town, please give whatever you can.

Thank you,

Glenn Nanavaty

Chairman Salvation Army – Newtown Unit

104 Boggs Hill Road, Newtown
