LINCOLN, Neb. The Salvation Army has up to 32 locations throughout Lincoln for bell ringers. However, they are in high need for more.

"This evening I'll have about half of our spots filled. Maybe 15 or so of our spots filled. We just don't have enough bell ringers." Said Major Jamie Pennington, Salvation Army

Major Pennington with the Salvation Army says they especially need ringers during the evenings and weekends. The Salvation Army is also in need of any toys, food or winter clothes which can be used for their angel trees they give to families in need each Christmas. Pennington says their number one need at the moment is more bell ringers even as the weather turns colder.

"You know I think we're very fortunate. We're very blessed people. We look here at Lincoln with a very low unemployment ratings and all the other things. So it's just a way of giving back to the community and thinking of those that are less fortunate." Major Pennington said

The Salvation Army will hold several activities throughout the holiday. They will be serving meals to the homeless on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and they're looking for volunteers.
