We are in the process of coordinating the bell ringing schedule for the Salvation Army Rogers County Chapter. Like most things this year, bell ringing will look a little different. Our plan is to cut back hours to peak store hours (11a-7p). The wellness and safety of our volunteers and patrons are of great importance to us, so we will require that masks and gloves be worn and will provide as needed.
Although we will be cutting hours, our need is still great in order to fund our programs. Our programs include: Food 4 Kids, which bridges the gap to provide food to children over the weekends, Summer Camps, which helps cover costs to allow children an opportunity to participate in these camps and support for our vulnerable neighbors having emergency needs through a partnership with Community Action Resource and Development (CARD.) We also plan to kick off a virtual bell ringing platform in addition to in person bell ringing.
We are currently scheduling slots for Reasors and 10Box starting THIS FRIDAY, November 6th. The plan is to start at Walmart on November 21st. Please let us know when you will be available. If you have an interest in a virtual ringing spot, please reach out.
