“The BAM Project,” a local Christian business women’s organization, is collaborating with The Salvation Army (SA) of Grass Valley to raise funds during the holidays.

Members of the group are volunteering to be Salvation Army bell ringers this Saturday at SPD market in Grass Valley, with hopes of collecting funds in the traditional red kettles.

Additionally, the ladies will have a bake sale table where 100 percent of the donations go to Salvation Army. The BAM Project’s website shows the year-to-date giving to local non profits.

Donations made to the Red Kettle Campaign stay in the local community, yet the Salvation Army continues to provide disaster relief services to families and individuals who are rebuilding from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy in New York and New Jersey.

Since late October, The Salvation Army has provided food, hydration, clothing, financial assistance and other supplies to hundreds of thousands of people. These services and others by The Salvation Army will continue throughout the holiday season and into the New Year until all the need created by Hurricane Sandy is met.
