The Salvation Army of Broward County is seeking to fill 125 seasonal paid bell ringer positions
at its Holiday 2020 Job Fair on November 4. South Florida residents with a positive outlook
and an affinity for philanthropy and fun are encouraged to apply at The Salvation Army Community Center, 100 SW 9th Avenue in Fort Lauderdale.
Synonymous with the Christmas season, “ringing the bell” at a Salvation Army Red Kettle has been a tradition since 1895. It’s not just about ringing a bell, however. All proceeds from the Kettle stay in Broward County and support the Salvation Army’s feeding, shelter and social service programs. Last year, the nonprofit organization raised more than $213,205 for the Greater Fort Lauderdale community.
The Job Fair screenings will comply with CDC-approved COVID-19 social distancing guidelines and applicants will be required to wear a mask. Bell Ringers will be selected for employment for the holiday period of November 13 – December 24.
The Red Kettle Bell Ringers program is only part of the nonprofit organization’s efforts to help those less fortunate. Last year’s Angel Tree Program secured and distributed more than 8,046 toys to 1,061 families with diminished resources. The Salvation Army is actively assisting thousands of residents-in-need through its Food Pantry during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each Thursday, trusted Army experts provide non-perishable items and other pantry goods to more hundreds of underserved families. The organization also provides meals-to-go services for the homeless, its residents and other impoverished individuals.
The Salvation Army is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to “meeting human needs without
discrimination.” For more information, contact Robert Beasley at Robert.Beasley@uss.salvationarmy.org. To make a donation, visit www.salvationarmyflorida.org/fortlauderdale or call (954) 524-6991. Follow us on Facebook at
