HANCOCK COUNTY — During the next five weeks, the Salvation Army of Hancock County will need hundreds of volunteers to dedicate nearly 2,000 hours to a familiar post – bell ringer.
The local branch of the national nonprofit is getting ready to kick off its signature Red Kettle Campaign, where people moved by the spirit of the season drop pocket change and loose dollar bills into collection buckets outside area grocery stores.
In Hancock County, volunteers at the six kettles at four locations throughout the county have a simple job: man the kettle, ring the bell and thank donors.
“A friendly face, a smile and a thank you is more than enough,” said volunteer coordinator Dave Medved of his expectations for volunteers.
