Citizens are braving the frigid temperatures to help the needy.
The Salvation Army has begun its annual Red Kettle Campaign.
“It’s one of those programs where we desperately rely on our community’s assistance by our volunteers that come through,” Captain Valencia Lewis said.
This year, The Salvation Army Prince William Corps in Woodbridge hopes to raise $124,000, which will be used to support individuals in need.
Prince William County Department of Fire & Rescue (PWCDFR) Chief Kevin McGee is one of several community members who are ringing bells this season.
“Organizations like The Salvation Army do such great things for the people in our community who are in the greatest need,” McGee said. “And I’m just so impressed with the generosity of our public who’s contributing to the Salvation [Army].”
Volunteer opportunities are still available.
Those interested in signing up to become a volunteer may visit The Salvation Army Prince William Corps website or Facebook page.
