The Salvation Army needs volunteers to ring the bell for the “Christmas in July” Red Kettle Campaign. This community event will take place on Friday and Saturday, July 24-25 from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. There will be several kettle sites set up with bell ringing volunteers needed at each site.
The sites involved are Twin Oast and Friendship Food Stores (both Port Clinton and Catawba locations). All proceeds will help support The Port Clinton Salvation Army Service Unit.
If you are interested in ringing the bell for “Christmas in July” or would like to make a donation, please contact Director Maureen Saponari at 419-732-2769, Maureen.firstname.lastname@example.org or The Salvation Army, 1834 East Perry St., Port Clinton, Ohio 43452.
The Salvation Army-Port Clinton Service Unit is also accepting applications and donations for the “Tools for School Program.” The Port Clinton Service Unit’s “Tools for School” program will assist all school-aged children in Ottawa County that are in need of school supplies and book bags for the 2020-2021 school year. Applications are available at The Salvation Army Office, United Way, The Sutton Center, Community Support, Jobs and Family Services and all Ottawa County libraries.
