SAN ANTONIO – With the holiday season nearly in full swing, the Salvation Army is facing a shortage of bell ringers for their annual Red Kettle Campaign.
Brad Mayhar, a spokesperson for the Salvation Army, said the organization is still searching for people to staff more than 100 bell-ringing locations across Bexar County and New Braunfels.
“We have a great need for volunteer and paid bell ringers, especially volunteers,” he said, adding that many have yet to find a full-time bell ringer.

Due to the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 Red Kettle Campaign will begin a week early on Nov. 21.
The campaign runs through Dec. 24.
Kettles can typically be found outside big-box stores like Walmart, Sam’s Club, Hobby Lobby and Bass Pro Shops, as well as malls.
