This is a friendly competition to see which team can Bell Ring to raise the most money in their Red Kettle for the Salvation Army of Augusta Area Command. It is a fun event that raises money to help with the many programs at the Salvation Army Center of Hope on 1384 Greene Street in Augusta.
This event originated in 2010 and is set around a football friendly theme to "Kick Off" our Bell Ringing season. We are in need of teams to make this event a success. A taem can be organized by a school, business, church, civic organization or military branch.
You will need a team leader to act as point of contact and to schedule your volunteers to Ring the Bell at your Red Kettle throughout the event 11am-6pm (two volunteers per 2 hour shift will work well. So we are talking a minimum of 8 volunteers for the day.
What you will need - a tent (we will gladly provide one if needed) table, chairs, team décor and hopefully a steady stream of donations throughout the day. Once you have committed to participate you will get the word to your supporters about the event to rally donations for your team’s kettle. Facebook should be a great way to reach out to gain support! Your supporters can mail a check to the team leader in advance or stop by to pop their donation in your Red Kettle the day of event and show their support! Contact: Ali Scavullo 706.434-3185 for more information or to sign up your team.
