ABQ REALTORS® Once Again Ring Bells For The Salvation Army

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016 at 10:18am.

Sometimes the best way to give thanks is to give back.

And one of the many ways GAAR REALTORS® and Affiliates give back is by ringing bells during the Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign.  

This annual holiday campaign is critical to the Salvation Army's annual fundraising goals. Their volunteer bell ringers help bring in over 65% of Salvation Army contributions – all of which go to providing Social Services for individuals of Bernalillo, Sandoval and Torrance County.

The social services the Salvation Army provides to our community include:

  • Emergency Food
  • Clothing
  • Transportation
  • Utility and Rental Assistance
  • Medical and Pharmaceutical Assistance
  • Meals
  • Youth Leadership Development
  • Education
  • Christmas for Families

When you collect donations for Salvation Army, you can be certain that 83¢ on every dollar goes to directly aid and if you donate to one of their emergency relief funds, 100% of donations goes directly to those in need.

By ringing bells for the Salvation Army, we help them continue their social service focus of bridging the gap with assistance when financial hardships occur to keep families independent, self-sustaining, safe and in their homes.
