BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - Bossier sheriff's deputies and staffers are ringing the bell and accepting donations for The Salvation Army until 6 p.m. Dec. 16 outside Kroger on Airline Drive in Bossier City.

They teamed up in pairs to meet and greet everyone who came to the store. Some sang and others danced while many shoppers stopped to donate, sheriff's Lt. Bill Davis said.

The Salvation Army says an hour of bell ringing raises enough money to shelter a homeless person for one night and serve them 3 meals.

If you miss them today, Bossier sheriff's deputies and staffers again will be out there ringing the bell from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Dec. 22.
