So, you think you can ring? That is the question Bossier Schools posed to Caddo Schools and the challenge is on Saturday, December 12.
From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at locations throughout Bossier Parish, students, faculty and parents will be ringing the bells and staffing the iconic red kettles for The Salvation Army. The school system collecting the most money during the one-day volunteer effort will be announced the following week by The Salvation Army.
Bossier Schools places great emphasis on paying it forward and giving to others. “Helping Hearts: The Power of We” is a district-wide community service initiative now in its third year and the red kettle challenge is just one example of many in which Bossier Schools’ employees and students eagerly embrace the spirit of philanthropy.
Superintendent D.C. Machen will kick off bell-ringing efforts at 10 a.m. Saturday at Walmart at 2536 Airline Drive. We encourage the media to stop by then or at any of the locations below. We also invite the public to give from the heart when they see Bossier Schools out in force helping The Salvation Army do the most good during the holidays and year-round.
Locations being staffed in Bossier:
Walmart at 2536 Airline Drive
Brookshire’s in Benton
Brookshire’s in Haughton
Hobby Lobby at 1051 George Dement Blvd.
Walmart Neighborhood Market at 4000 Barksdale Blvd.
