Salvation Army bell ringers volunteer time to help LA residents

-A A +A

Bells will ringing this holiday season at Smith’s Grocery Store — both in White Rock and Los Alamos. Volunteers will be out Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until Christmas Eve.
Families in Los Alamos County are helped through the office of Self Help, Inc. who serves as the local Salvation Army branch. The funds are used locally and go directly to help Los Alamos County families to pay for basic needs such as housing, food, utility bills, emergency travel and clothing. For more information of this project, call Ellen Morris, director of Self-Help at 662-4666.
Annie Bard, director of the White Rock Senior Center, did the scheduling for volunteers in White Rock and Irene Powell, RSVP director at the Betty Ehart Senior Center did the scheduling for Los Alamos.
Bert Denis and Jim Little helped in getting the donations deposited in the bank. Los Alamos National Bank is on hand to manage the money and helping Self-Help with distribution of the funds.
Anyone interested in joining the group and want to ring a bell, call Irene Powell at 662-8923 (Los Alamos), or Annie Bard at 662-8200 (White Rock.)
Little children dropping in change to elderly people on tight budgets slipping in checks will make a difference in someone’s life.
