Volunteers needed to ring the bell


The local chapter of the Salvation Army is looking for volunteers to ring the bell at its donation kettle, set up for the holiday season at the Halifax Stop & Shop. Last year, the Salvation Army’s first at that location, netted $5,000. Kettle drive coordinator Christine Tompkins hopes to have the bell ringing this season from 9 a .m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Volunteers can sign up for as little as two hours or as many as they want, Tompkins said. “It’s also a good way for kids in school to earn community service hours,” she said. The kettle is set up in the store’s foyer, in a heated area where grocery carts are stored. “We also have folding chairs for added comfort,” Tomkins said. Volunteers can sign up by calling the Halifax Council on Aging at 781-293-7313 or Tompkins at 781-361-5778.
