Popular Valley real estate agents and best-selling authors JoAnn and Joseph Callaway can be found ringing bells next to red Salvation Army kettles on Wednesdays in December.
The Callaways, known as “Those Callaways,” so far have helped recruit 1,500 other real estate industry volunteers to help raise money for the non profit by manning kettles across metro Phoenix.
In mid-2013, Salvation Army national advisory board member Marlene Klotz-Collins welcomed the couple to the organization’s Phoenix board and told them about the problem finding volunteer bell ringers on Wednesdays during the holidays. The nonprofit had to hire ringers and was losing money.
