Salvation Army Bell Ringing
Gateway partners with the Salvation Army to serve those in need all year round. We help manage an Emergency Relief Fund that serves dozens of families in the region. We meet with families, talk with them, and learn how we might walk alongside them as they face the hard things in their life. The Fund is able to help an elderly person keep the heat on, a newly single mom with rent, and so much more.
Annually, we are able to connect families to about $12,000 raised annually right here in Slippery Rock. All of that money is raised by those who ring the bell just inside the front door of the Slippery Rock Giant Eagle.
This year, our church family has the opportunity to ring the bell on two nights: December 17 and 19 from 4pm to 9pm. Folks agree to serve for an hour, so we only need 10 folks to sign up to ring. Plus, everyone can do it! Even our littlest Gateway members can serve the community by helping to ring.
