The Salvation Army is in critical need of volunteer bell ringers as Christmas approaches.
89 shifts are available this weekend on Friday and Saturday. The shifts are two hours long, from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. each day.
More than 3,000 families in need rely on the Salvation Army's help during the holiday season. Money raised during these times go straight to those families.
Right now the Salvation Army is short of its $200,000 goal for the season.
To volunteer call 815-962-7207 or visit www.ringbells.org.
