It’s that time of year again—outside all of your favorite stores sit red kettles with warm-hearted volunteers enthusiastically ringing bells, calling your attention to a wonderful cause. Friday, December 7th, 2012, all Minnesota REALTORS® will be the ones ringing the bells as they participate in REALTOR® Ring Day.
Minnesota REALTORS® are invited to participate whether you’re in the Twin Cities or near one of the other 14 participating Minnesota cities: Albert Lea, Austin, Brainerd, Cloquet, Duluth, Fairmont, Fergus Falls, Hibbing, International Falls, Mankato, Rochester, St. Cloud, Virginia, or Willmar.
Historically, REALTOR® Ring Day has been one of the largest single-day volunteer efforts in Northern Division Salvation Army history, raising as much as $190,000. This money helps the Salvation Army provide something to people in need that we know REALTORS® feel passionately about—housing. Throughout the country, The Salvation Army provides nearly 10 million nights of emergency, temporary, and permanent housing each year.
If you are interested in volunteering for REALTOR® Ring Day, find a kettle near you and sign up at http://salvationarmynorth.org/realtorringday. We hope to see you next Friday!
