(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The Salvation Army is looking for a little holiday help.

Bell ringers are needed for the charity's Red Kettle campaign.

The organization would like to get about 1,000 people signed up this year.

Although bell ringers make about $7.70 per hour, it's about more than just making some extra holiday cash, The Salvation Army says it's about helping others.

"Obviously the more, the merrier, we need a lot of volunteers and when you think about a good tradition to teach your children how to give back to the community and have a good time doing it, consider Salvation Army bell ringing," Major Abe Tamayo said.

Money raised through the Kettle Campaign goes to support Salvation Army programs.

The Red Kettle campaign runs from November 17-December 23.
