MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - The Salvation Army in Midland wants more people to ring bells for the holiday season.

They're hoping to surpass last year's donation total of $137,000, which helped provide Christmas gifts for more than 1,200 under-privileged kids.

Their goal for this year is $145,000.

One of this year's volunteers, Lyndsey Childs, says she enjoys the service.

"It brings out the holiday spirit, it's fun," says Childs.

If your in a cash crunch yourself, keep in mind, you can apply for a paid bell ringer position.
