    and daily 11/23- 11/28, and again 12/14 – 12/24.

    Salvation Army does not ring the bells on Sundays. The money collected each year helps individuals and families in need throughout our county. Please consider giving 2 hours of your time to ring the bells in support of the Salvation Army Kettle Campaign. Call the Birch Street Center at 218-735-6122 to schedule a time to ring the bells.
