Napa First Christian Church
The Salvation Army has been serving Napa County since 1884 and during that time the services provided have to changed to meet the needs of people as they evolve. Currently we feed the community six days per week, operate the Napa Valley Culinary Training Academy to give those who have struggled with drugs, alcohol, homelessness or a criminal past the opportunity to reboot their lives and launch into a career in the famed Napa Valley culinary industry. Coming soon The Salvation Army will launch the Leaven after school program made possible by First Christian's commitment to mission work in our own back yard. Your volunteerism help make all these opportunities a reality - THANK YOU First Christian friends and family!
Last year First Christian friends rang for 113.5 hours over 20 days of the season and raised $9,398.55 to help The Salvation Army to assist people in need throughout the year.
THINGS TO KNOW THE DAY OF BELL RINGING
--> Arrive at the location on time; the kettles are dropped off to locations on a route and being late at one site will make the whole drop off process to other site fall behind as well.
--> A Salvation Army representative will meet the first individual or group of the day at the kettle location to start the first shift.
--> We will bring the kettle, stand, aprons & bells - you will the enthusiasm and holiday cheer.
--> As each next shift arrive they take over the aprons and the bells from the shift before; a representative will pick up the kettle and equipment from the last volunteer of the day.
--> We will be able to tell you how much your group raised by the next morning. These friendly red kettles accept paper currency, coins and checks - we also have an online donation website to direct people to at www.naparedkettle.org for those who would like to use a credit card.
--> Our national agreement with Walmart does not allow singing, playing music, smoking, drinking alcohol or sitting at the kettle.
--> Keep the bell ringing and stay near the kettle; kettles that are "unmanned" are largely ignored by those going in and out (the purpose of the bell is to draw attention to the kettle) The Salvation Army has been bell ringing since 1891 so we have some best practices to make it work a bit better.
--> If you have questions please text or call Lt. Bridget McCort (415) 654-4696 mobile or email [email protected]
--> THANK YOU for your commitment to volunteerism and for participating in this fun Christmas tradition.
