Salvation Army Set to Hire 300 for Red Kettle Campaign

The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County is 300 hiring bell ringers for the 2015 Red Kettle Campaign.

"We expect several hundred people to apply for our seasonal employment opportunities," said Major Dan Jennings, divisional commander for The Salvation Army in Wisconsin & Upper Michigan.  "Because of the cold weather we experience here in Wisconsin, bell ringer turnover is high.  We will continue to hire throughout the season."

Candidates need to be at least 18 years of age, present a valid driver's license or state ID, have a social security card and be available to commit to ringing bells six days a week from Friday, Nov., 6 until Thursday, Dec., 24.  

"In Milwaukee County we have about 100 locations.  It's been difficult to fill the locations for 12 hours per day with just a volunteer force. Many of those we hire have been served through one of our 85 programs.  The seasonal work we offer helps many individuals obtain the work experience they need to obtain year round employment," said Jennings.

Those interested can apply at one of the following four locations Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. beginning Wednesday, October 21, 2015:
