Thomasville-- Its that familiar sound of a ringing bell that lets you know Christmas is on the way.   That's right, we're talking about the Salvation Army bell ringers.

Thomasville's Salvation Army kicked off their annual kettle campaign Friday.  Set up at 11 sites in Thomasville, Quitman, and Cairo, the group hopes the raise $45,000 this year.

They say the community has helped them meet their goal every year.   "You don't even have to ask people to give because they know why the salvation army is there. Its there for their community, for our community," says Major Robert Green.

The money will be spent on food and toys the Salvation Army buys for needy families around the holidays.
