Rotary to Ring bells for Salvation Army On Saturday Dec. 3

Each year during the Holiday Season, it is the tradition of the Mineola-Garden City Rotary Club to assist with the Salvation Army’s Bell Ring project.  On Saturday, December 3, Rotary volunteers assisted by Scouts sponsored by St. Joseph’s Church will be manning the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle at the rear entrance of Kings market, from 9 a.m. to 4p.m.  Please stop by and help Rotary support this annual holiday service program.

Dedicated to doing the most good for men, women and children who need it most, the Salvation Army of Greater New York serves more than 600,000 New Yorkers each year in over 140 community and social service programs.  The organization also provides Thanksgiving and Christmas assistance in addition to serving food pantries, emergency rent programs and medical expenses for people in need throughout Nassau County.

The Mineola-Garden City Rotary Club includes its annual bell ringing to assist the Salvation Army as one of its many service projects and thanks Kings Supermarket for allowing the Club to ring the bells outside its store. Long time project chairperson Rotarian Bob Schoelle also thanks the many Garden City residents for their generosity.
