(Minnesota) — We are less than one month away from the season of giving and the Salvation Army is also feeling the strains of the COVID-19 Pandemic as red kettle bell-ringers are not too far away from being dispersed throughout the Northland.

We spoke with Dan Furry, Public Relations and Communications Director for Salvation Army Northern Division, on how the Salvation Army has adjusted with the current times in COVID-19.

The red kettle has been a staple for 130 years with the Salvation Army. Needs from the Salvation Army have been numerous since the early days of the Pandemic, which has created new opportunities for awareness of their services.

The need for volunteers, while being safe and healthy, is still a high priority.

Donations to the Salvation Army stores have also seen increased traffic.

Visit www.salvationarmynorth.org to find opportunities to be a red kettle bell-ringer this season, to volunteer your time, or to find the nearest Salvation Army store.
