If you want to help ring red kettle bells, contact your nearest Salvation Army to help out this holiday season. The Salvation Army is looking to fill two-hour shifts right up until 8 p.m. Christmas Eve, though Wheeler suggests giving coordinators a few days' notice when signing up.
In Waseca, red kettles are set up at Walmart, Bomgaars and Hy-Vee on Fridays and Saturdays. Lopez says the funds they collect remain local and are used all year long for Emergency Services including rent, utilities, and food, the Community Meal Program, and the Food Pantry. Nearly $2.500 was raised.
The gifts will be distributed next week to the parents of more than 5,000 local children. "It really warms your heart just to know there are people who still care in the world".
"Sometimes we're just not able to help as many people as we did the previous year", said Lt. Charles.

Donations can also be submitted on the website www.salvationarmyusa.org/usn/givebycheck through the end of the year to help meet the 2017 goal of $305,000. "A big gift, a medium gift and a small gift".
"That does not include the staff that we have, which is 24 hours a day, that we pay and provide for their meals because they live there (the Nest Children's Home). So, that might be part of the reason we're struggling", Wheeler said, later explaining that people might not feel as comfortable putting their money into an unsupervised kettle.
