The Salvation Army is in great need of volunteers to support their annual Christmas Kettle Campaign.  Normally they require that volunteers be a minimum of 18 years of age but we have arranged for Duke students under the age of 18 to volunteer “as a team of two” in order to avail of this excellent opportunity, while helping this outstanding community cause during the Christmas Season.  Given that a lot of Duke students take a break from their volunteer work over the Christmas holidays, thus having a big gap in their volunteer requirement for their award level, this is a quick and easy opportunity to earn the maximum allowable 4 bulk hours in one day that you can count forward over a 4 week period.  If you and a friend or fellow Duke participant wish to team up and take advantage of this opportunity, you can do so by contacting Brian at the Salvation Army at 726-2273 and identify yourself as a participant of the Gonzaga Duke of Edinburgh International Award’s Program, and they would be delighted to avail of your much needed help and will sign off on any volunteer hours you give to the campaign.  If you cannot find another Duke participant to team up with you, you can also have another person go with you (parent, family member, etc.) but that individual “must be over the age of 18”.  The hours of operation for the Kettle Campaign are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and they operate in some 14 plus locations and can match you up with an area that works for you.  Don’t miss out on this great chance to keep accumulating your volunteer hours over the holiday season.  Thank you.
