LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Salvation Army needs help giving 100 kids the ultimate summer vacation.

The Lubbock chapter is asking for sponsors to send underprivileged children to camp for a week. The goal is to give kids a break from stressful family situations and grow in their Christian faith.

"We know that when the kids go back to school they will have a good experience to share in their class and, you know, 'I had a vacation and I went to do this place and did all this.' The memories that the kids are going to have, they can hold onto for the rest of their lives," Salvation Army captain Nathanael Doria said.

Volunteers will be outside United Supermarkets April 14 from 10 am to 4pm ringing those bells to collect donations. Donors are also welcome to bring cash or checks to the Salvation Army office at 1111 16th St, Lubbock, TX 79401. Fundraising will continue until all 100 slots are funded.

To sign up to ring the bells, contact Kris Perez, at 806-765-9434.
