The Rotary Club of Scottsdale and Salvation Army teamed up recently to thank the Scottsdale Nordstrom’s store for its continual support of the Salvation Army’s holiday bell ringing program.

During the club’s Nov. 30 meeting at Scottsdale McCormick’s Lakeside Ballroom, Maj. Mike Dickinson, Corps Officer/Administrator of The Salvation Army’s Kroc Corps Community Center – Phoenix South Mountain, presented Scottsdale Fashion Square Nordstrom’s store manager Lejla Hasanagic with a special award in recognition of the store’s support of Salvation Army’s Red Kettle holiday bell ringing campaign.

Rotary Club of Scottsdale members, family and friends helped raise $7,000 of the $25,000 that was raised from belling ringing at the store in 2014.

The Rotarians hope to exceed Red Kettle donations during the 2015 holiday bell ringing season. The monies raised benefit the KROC Center, which is located on 16 acres on a hill in the heart of the Phoenix South Mountain community.

The Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center’s mission is to build a community of hope by providing opportunities for personal discovery, growth and service through arts, education, recreation, wellness and spiritual guidance.

Keeping true to The Salvation Army mission, the KROC Center nurtures the whole person — body, spirit and mind.
