Walmart Bellringing Day

 

 

 

December 17 – 7 am to 8 pm

An idea that began with the Salvation Army and one Walmart store in Houston has now snowballed into a partnership that will involve more than 120 store locations across Central Texas. Walmart Red Kettles from Waco, Austin, College Station, Lufkin, Beaumont, Houston and everywhere in between will be manned by volunteer Walmart Associates on December 17 from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Many thanks to Walmart Associates for this volunteer effort.

About The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in 1865, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination for 130 years in the United States. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. 81 cents of every dollar spent is used to carry out those services in 5,000 communities nationwide.
