Bells will be ringing - Friday

Grocery stores are echoing with the sounds of bells ringing for donations to the Salvation Army, and on Monday, some Green Bay shoppers were greeted by U.S. Representative Mike Gallagher.

The annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner will be held from noon-1:30 p.m. today at Norwood United Methodist Church at the corner of Oakwood Avenue and Colegate Drive in Marietta.

The organization said stretching their resources out across the metro and giving as many people as possible a reason to be thankful this holiday is what Thanksgiving is all about.

For decades, Lundy's Catering has visited the Salvation Army on Thanksgiving to feed people in need.

According to Andy Izquierdo, vice president of communications and social impact, Belk is launching a new social impact strategy in December called "Home for the Holidays" that The Salvation Army doesn't factor into.

Last year, The Salvation Army provided more than 32,000 hot meals, 12,000 nights of lodging and financial assistance to more than 6,000 people. For people hit hard by life, they say they appreciate having a place to go to celebrate.

The Salvation Army is grateful for the help it received.

"This is our second year", said Woodard.

"My mom always, at Thanksgiving she always said, 'kids, this is love, '" Lewis said.

Cope said that The Salvation Army wants to maintain its good relationship with Belk.

"We still have quite a few spots to fill", she said.

Volunteers from the Post, the Auxiliary, Sons of American Legion and the community share the "reason for the season" by preparing and serving the free Thanksgiving buffet that is open to all members of Post 159 and residents of Williamstown School District. Having volunteer bell ringers instead of paid ringers ensures that funds raised in the Red Kettle can be applied directly to local program needs.

The instantly iconic sound of jingle bells is back out in the Nanaimo community.
