The Salvation Army needs more volunteers
to help with its fund-raising kettles.

Lend a hand, and arm to
good cause for holidays

There's no need to head out to the gym. Not when you can flex your biceps and brachioradialis for a good cause.

The annual Salvation Army Christmas kettles will begin appearing this weekend in shopping malls to raise funds for those in need. But the organization still needs volunteers to watch the pots and ring the accompanying bells.

Last year more than 40,000 men, women and children received assistance from the Salvation Army during the holiday season. Funds raised provided toys for underprivileged children, food for needy families, gifts for forgotten seniors, hospital patients and more.

To sign up to be a bell ringer, call 988-2136 for more information.

Based on her experiences as the first Asian-american to star in her own sitcom, "All-American Girl," the work describes her journey "to hell and back" during the controversial series, and her tailspin after the show's cancellation.

Cho, 30, has brought "I'm the One That I Want" to standing-room only audiences across the nation.
