Members of the Vigo County Retired Teachers Association volunteered to ring the bell as part of the association’s winter service project to support the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign. Forty volunteers rang the bell over five days at the Terre Haute Kroger South location. The Salvation Army noted that just two hours of ringing a bell at a red kettle can raise enough money to feed a family of four for a week.

This year the VCRTA happily volunteered over 80 hours and collected donations to help the Salvation Army reach the 2015 Red Kettle campaign goal.
