MEDFORD, Ore.-- The Salvation Army of Jackson County is looking for dozens of volunteers. 

The Kettle Kickoff is less than a month away. It needs people to ring bells and collect money. 

This year, Salvation Army is hoping to raise $170,00 through it's bell ringing and Kettle Campaign. The raised stays in Jackson County to help local people in need. 

“One of the great things with Salvation Army is we don’t just come into a community, do what we do, and then leave. We are a part of the community," said Major Jason Koenig. "We have volunteers who have been volunteering with us for a few years, sometimes we only see them at Christmas time, we’ve got some new volunteers to meet, it becomes one big family.”

Salvation Army depends on volunteers to help collect all that money. 

“If you really look at it, if it wasn’t for the volunteers, Salvation Army wouldn’t be able to do what we do in the community," said Koenig. "We are very thankful for volunteers that come here just with the desire to help the community.”

Salvation Army is looking to have bell ringers at 32 locations in Jackson County. There are slots available six days a week. 

“We have a lot of different openings, a lot of different gaps, and we need a lot of people to be able to help us do everything that we do during the Christmas season," said Koenig. 

This bell ringing season will actually be about six days shorter that last year because of when Thanksgiving is. Koenig says the Salvation Army will lose out on about $30,000 because of those lost days. He's hoping lots of volunteers will step up to help fill that gap. 

You can call 541-773-6965 if you're interested in volunteering. You can also learn more about Salvation Army on it's website.
