The Des Moines Area Association of Realtors is taking up some real estate at Valley West Mall Friday.

Members are lending a hand to the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign.

They say it’s a perfect fit, because of the many housing programs offered by the Salvation Army. Last year, it provided housing assistance to 487 families and utility assistance to 237 families in the Des Moines metro.

Volunteers will be onsite to collect donations at the second floor mall entrance to JC Penney until 8:00 p.m. Friday.

Realtor Associations across the country are helping out the Salvation Army by ringing bells Friday, because it is Realtor Ring Day.
