The bell-ringing competition is on!
Service club members will be stationed at Salvation Army red kettles in front of stores throughout the city encouraging large donations to the organization during the holidays. The club that raises the most earns the Red Kettle Trophy.
This Salvation Army's fundraiser has been held since 1891, providing food and social services for the underprivileged around the world.
The Burbank Salvation Army Community Center needs volunteers for the Angel Tree Project. The tree is on the third floor of the Burbank Town Center, by the Burlington Coat Factory. Hours are 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. every day until Dec. 21.
Donors pick a card from the tree that lists the suggested gift for a child. The unwrapped gift must be returned to the Angel Tree by Dec. 20 or brought to the Burbank Salvation Army by Dec. 21. Recipients’ names are provided through community centers, social service programs and other organizations.
