The Salvation Army hiring seasonal bell ringers

KANSAS CITY, KAN. - The Salvation Army is currently hiring seasonal bell ringers to assist with its 2014 Christmas Red Kettle Campaign, which runs November 7 through December 24 every day except Sundays and Thanksgiving Day.

All day parts are available at more than 250 locations across the Kansas City metropolitan area between the hours of 9 am and 9 pm.

Applicants must be able to stand for extended periods of time and endure weather extremes.

“Many of our paid bell ringers are people trying to make ends meet in a tough economy, but they also want to do something that makes them feel like they are making a difference,” said Major Evie Diaz, divisional commander of The Salvation Army in Kansas City. “Their work will help us provide food, clothing and shelter to people in need in their own community throughout the year and during the Christmas season.”
