SALVATION ARMY BELL RINGING JONESBORO ARKANSAS

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Wright-Pace Real Estate

The Salvation Army bell ringers officially kicked off nationwide on Thanksgiving Day and will continue through Christmas Eve. The money from this project will provide assistance throughout the year. The Jonesboro Salvation Army has started asking for volunteers to be a bell ringer for one day in December. This includes elected officials,community leaders, and businesses which include real estate professionals. It is called "Celebrity Bell Ringers" day. Our office Century 21 Indian Realty joined in again this year. My bell ringing this year was at our local Sams club. I will say I am so proud of our town we came through again. Our red kettle was over flowing with money. Almost everyone who entered Sams dug deep into their pockets to give something. As they gave we also passed out candy canes and wished them all Merry Christmas. I challenge all my fellow real estate agents during this wonderful Holiday Season as you pass by stores and there is Salvation Army bell ringers please give what you can. This is a great way to help those in need. I think as we work in our community we also should serve in our community as well. I had a wonderful time today and I will give my time as a "Celebrity Bell Ringer" again next year. This is a great idea to volunteer for this you might be able to pass this idea on in your community as well. I will say the "Celebrity Bell Ringers" is a success in Jonesboro.

I would like to hear from my Active rain friends on your community service in your hometown. Please give back to your community its the greatest feeling. Hope you all have a Happy Holiday and a blessed 2009.

Tinker, I was a bell ringer one year...I really should do it again, it was a great experience to be able to volunteer for a few hours and know that I helped someone out that year. Thank you for sharing and reminding us to help out in our communities. Happy Holidays!

They are one of my favorite charities; I send them checks and put money in the kettle. They outshone everyone else, IMHO, during Katrina.

Guys

Don't let Tinker fool you, she's still competitive even when it comes to ringing the bell, I was at one of the Walmart's in town at the same time....Monday morning she and one of the other ladies that was with her came in bragging about how much their pot took in....so don't think she's all about the Christmas spirit....hahahaha

Just kidding Tinker, I enjoyed it too...I'm just proud it wasn't any colder.....

Tinker,

You are right, the Salvation Army does do so much. Our office also participated in Clarksville AR and we loved it! It was a great day and it did give you a great feeling to help out. I noticed alot of people that "took the long way around" to avoid me...lol...but I tried to make eye contract when they come out! It usually brought in at least a quarter or so! Every little bit helps. I think we raised quite a bit and will look forward to it next year!
