The Salvation Army of Ventura has recently finished placing its signature red donation kettles outside several area stores. Now, it’s up to the community members to help the organization reach its fundraising goal of $100,000. Community members can also donate though text message by texting HopeRings to 41-444. Volunteers are the difference between an empty kettle and one that raises about $30 per hour – enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries or shelter an individual for a night.
Anyone interested in volunteer opportunity of ringing the bell, please call 805-653-3598 and ask to speak with Lt. Silvia.
Lt. Silvia Benetti Simoes stated “Through your generosity we will be able to fight hunger, give warmth, clothe the needy, provide housing services, fight natural disasters, and continue to do the most good. Your Donation Helps Change Lives For The Better.”
