The Salvation Army will allow Los Alamos residents to collect money, using their name, starting the weekend after Thanksgiving and continuing until Christmas Eve. All the donations are given to the Los Alamos non-profit, Self-Help, to help needy people in the area.
Those who would like to volunteer as bell ringers may call Irene Powell at 662-8923 to work a shift at the Los Alamos Smith’s or Annie Bard at 662-8200 for the White Rock Smith’s.
Families are welcome, as well as clubs and organizations.
“You can sing, dance and play music while you ring the bell,” organizers said.
The organizers would like to thank the Smith’s stores for use of their sites.
