Families in Los Alamos County are helped through the office of Self Help, Inc. who serves as the local Salvation Army branch. The generosity of the community helps Los Alamos County families to pay for basic needs such as housing, food, utility bills, emergency travel, and clothing.
The 45 volunteers started ringing the bells right after Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at both Smith stores.
Annie Bard, director of the White Rock Senior Center, and Irene Powell, RSVP director at the Betty Ehart Senior Center scheduled the ringers. Ringers were creative in dressing up like Santa or singing or putting candy canes on top of the donation bucket.
A special thanks to the Smith’s stores for allowing the bell ringers to be there.
Thank you, Los Alamos, for donating $15,000 to help needy families of Los Alamos County.
