The Salvation Army of Broward County is seeking South Florida residents with a positive outlook and an affinity for philanthropy and fun to apply for seasonal bell ringer positions during the nonprofit organization’s three job fairs on October 12, from 10 a.m. – noon, October 13, from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. and October 28, from 10 a.m. – noon. The job fairs will take place at the Salvation Army’s headquarters, 100 SW 9th Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. Approximately 125 paid positions will need to be filled.
Synonymous with the Christmas season, “ringing the bell” at a Salvation Army Red Kettle has been a tradition since 1895. It’s not just about ringing a bell, however. All proceeds from the Kettle stay in Broward County and support the Salvation Army’s feeding, shelter and social service programs. Last year, the nonprofit organization raised over $320,215, more than a 33% increase over the same period last year, in less than five weeks in November and December, for the Greater Fort Lauderdale community.
The Job Fair screenings will comply with CDC-approved COVID-19 social distancing guidelines and applicants will be required to wear a mask. Bell Ringers will be selected for employment for the holiday period of November 12 – December 24.
