HARRISONBURG--- The holiday helpers known for ringing bells are in need of some help themselves. Salvation Army fundraising is short, due to fewer days this year between Christmas and Thanksgiving.

The Salvation Army has 14 days left in its campaign locally. It just passed the halfway mark to a goal of $150,000, about 7 percent behind this time last year.

While donations may be most important, there is something more important to make them possible.

"We as an Army can not do anything without volunteers. We rely on the community for funding, we rely on the community for volunteers, people say we are the hands and the feet, but the community, the volunteers are the blood and the heart," said Capt. Duane Burleigh of the Salvation Army Harrisonburg Corps.

Volunteers can offer their time this holiday season with the Salvation Army at any ringer location. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
