Star Wars characters ring bells for Salvation Army

Posted: Updated:

If you were in Linn County Saturday, you may have noticed some of your favorite Star Wars characters ringing the bells.

Bell ringers for the Salvation Army's Red Kettle campaign were encouraged to dress up as Star Wars characters to help bring in donations for families in need.

At the NewBo City Market in Cedar Rapids, we spotted Admiral Ozzel and Darth Vader.

"So we're out here today for a great opportunity to ring the bell for the Salvation Army. It's great coming out and putting smiles on kids faces and adults faces," said bell ringer Micah Mogle. 

This idea is all a competition to see who can raise the most money. 

Each group participant has to post a picture to the Cedar Rapids Salvation Army's Facebook page, and the picture with the most likes wins a prize from around the community.
