SHERIDAN — There is a new spin to the Salvation Army kettle collection this winter.
A kettle competition will be held from Thanksgiving until Christmas.
Every Saturday in that time frame volunteers from participating business will be manning 7 different kettles throughout town attempting to raise the most money for the Salvation Army. Some of the organizations signed up to participate include county employees, church employees and more. The buckets will be at two entrances to Wal-Mart, Albertsons, Safeway, JC Pennies, the post office and Kmart.
Dave Engels, advisory board member for the Salvation army, says the organization does not have enough bell ringers during the holiday so they hire people. By having local figures donate their time in this manner, they do not have to pay anyone and they are likely to raise more funds with a familiar local face by the kettle.
There are 2 slots left in the competition if you or your organization are interested in participating.
For more information or to sign up contact Engels at 673-1542 extension 26.
