The Salvation Army Christmas Season Assistance and Opportunities

November 3 @ 8:00 am - November 24 @ 5:00 pm

 

Christmas Assistance

This year The Salvation Army of Jackson County and Toys For Tots of Jackson County are partnering together to ensure we can make the biggest impact for the children and families in Jackson County this Christmas.  We have an online application. www.saangeltree.org.
This online application will be available through December 4th, 2020. We will provide on-site registration November 3rd through 6th, 2020.  We have also taken off some of our usual qualification restrictions to ensure we are able to assist all who have been impacted by the fires and COVID-19.  We are prepared to assist at a minimum of 9,000 Jackson County children with Christmas toys, clothing, and food.

 

Kettles/Bell Ringing- Volunteer and Paid Positions

‘Tis the season for bell ringing.  Christmas is coming around the corner and we are already gearing up for Kettles.  As with all donations to The Salvation Army, these campaigns are entirely to benefit those in need within our community and all proceeds will remain in Jackson County. With this in mind it is our goal to raise $160,000 through our Bell Ringing/Kettle Campaign.  In order to accomplish this goal we need your help.  We have the opportunity to have a bell ringer/kettle at least 20-25 locations per day in Jackson County.  It is our goal to have all locations filled each day of the season.  The more volunteer locations we have the more funds to be used in direct service for our community programs.   With this in mind, we also have employment opportunities to ensure we have all of our locations covered.  We are hiring bell ringers at $12.00/hr to work 40hrs a week between November 21st  through December 24th.  Our bell ringers will be required to follow COVID-19 guidelines when at each location (wearing masks, social distancing, sanitizing the kettle, etc..)

 

Turkey Give Away

As we have done each year we will be giving away at least 400 turkeys to those in need in Jackson County.  Our turkey giveaway will be Tuesday, November 24, 2020.  This turkey give away will be held at the Thrift Store parking lot area (922 N. Central). The distribution will begin at 1:00 p.m. and end once the line has finished, which usually occurs by 1:45 p.m.  We are also in need of donated turkeys for this event.

 

Volunteer Opportunities

We are in need of hundreds of volunteers during the Christmas season.  Whether it be bell ringing, sorting toys, etc.. we have many opportunities/openings for people to help.

 

Thank you,
