"We are overjoyed at the outpouring of community support we see every year with the Bell Ringing Season', states Captain Ken Shiels, county coordinator for The Salvation Army of Brown County. "The Salvation Army of Brown County is extremely blest to have volunteer minded neighbors who offer their time in support of programs that help others in need."
Bell Season runs Friday, November 9, 2012 and Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 56 kettle sites throughout Green Bay and the surrounding area.

December 6: Elves
