— The Salvation Army is looking for bell ringers as the holiday season approaches.

The Army’s branches in Broward and Miami-Dade counties are looking for people to ring bells during the annual Red Kettle Campaign. The job lasts through Christmas Eve and pays $8.50 an hour.

The Salvation Army’s Sally Gress told the Miami Herald ( ) the holiday campaign is one of the agency’s most important fundraisers. Bell ringers have been collecting donations since 1891.

In Broward County, the agency is having two job fairs to fill 50 positions. Gress says they are looking for people with good people skills. And being able to stand outside for up to 10 hours a shift also helps.

In Miami-Dade, the agency will hire about 15 bell ringers at each of its four centers.
