Has he turned away from the Dark Side? Seems so, since Darth Vader will be ringing bells for the Salvation Army today in support of their Red Kettle Campaign!

Yep, Darth Vader and 12 other Star Wars Characters, along with the Grand Rapids Advisory Board of The Salvation Army will be ringing bells in support of the Red Kettle Campaign along with the Brass Band playing favorite Christmas Carols.

It will be a quick one, today, December 8, at Woodland Mall from 12 noon to 1 p.m. Darth, and his "Force," will be in front of Macy's, JC Penny and Cafes in the Woods Food Court.

You, and your kids, will love the adventure of meeting Darth Vader and other Star Wars characters, and of supporting the Salvation Army. So, don't forget to put some money in the Red Kettles. And, may the force be with you!
