SALISBURY, Md. – As we prepare for the holidays, the Salvation Army is also gearing up after a tough year.

Those with the salvation army tell us, last year tested their faith between shortages of volunteers, and a decrease in donations, it made for a long holiday season. However, we’re told the season also allowed them to find other ways to help such as delivering more food for those experiencing food insecurity. Now for the 2021 season, they’re ready to get back out there, get into more locations for their annual bell ringing, deliver more food and get more volunteers, especially for their angel tree program.

“Volunteers are crucial, they are a must to the Salvation Army’s success during the holiday season we depend on the community for that,” says Captain Matt Trantham with the Salvation Army.  He adds, “So 2022 is going to be a good year I believe we just have to trust that God will provide the community will come alongside us and I really believe that we’re on the tail end of this pandemic.”

We’re also told, those with the salvation army want to see more kids come back to participate in their sports teams.

If you want to help ring bells this holiday season, just call 410-749-RING, or visit their website.
