“Love Beyond” this holiday season! The Salvation Army of Broward County is seeking South Florida residents with a positive outlook and an affinity for philanthropy and fun to apply for seasonal bell ringer positions during the nonprofit organization’s three job fairs on Tuesday, October 11, from 10 a.m. – noon, Thursday, October 13, from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. and Thursday, October 27, from 10 a.m. – noon. The job fairs will take place at The Salvation Army’s headquarters at 100 SW 9th Avenue in Fort Lauderdale. Approximately 125 paid positions throughout 50 locations will need to be filled.
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. Each year, the nonprofit organization raises hundreds of thousands of dollars during this effort for the Greater Fort Lauderdale community.
Bell Ringers will be selected for employment for the holiday period of November 11 – 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 thousands of gifts to families with diminished resources. The Salvation Army is presently assisting Hurricane Ian neighbor efforts in Central Florida and is also actively assisting thousands of residents-in-need through its Food Pantry. 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.
