Music and youth services are two things that go back to the very foundations of the Salvation Army.
They’ve long been a part of youth activities in the local Corps too.
Many young people in our community want to learn to play an instrument but lack resources to buy or rent one. In an effort to support music programs for youth, the advisory board of the Superior Salvation Army and dozens of community volunteers from local civic groups and service clubs will be out ringing bells Monday.
“Our goal is to raise funds to purchase instruments to be used in our youth outreach programs,” said Advisory Board Chairman John Munson. “This is a real need in our community and we hope that people will join us in supporting our youth. Learning to play an instrument can provide a lifetime of enjoyment. It encourages creativity and self-expression in a positive way. We know we can’t provide instruments to everyone, but we can make a start.”
Red kettles and bell ringers will be stationed around Superior asking for your support 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday at all three Super One stores, Walgreens and Kmart.
Local service clubs and other volunteers man the red kettles all day long asking for your help to make sure young people who want to play music get the chance.
