Many of may recognize Jim Hennigan from ringing the Salvation Army bell outside of Roche Bros in West Roxbury. But did you know that Hennigan has also been the organizer of the Parkway Kettle Campaign for 11 years?
The Boston Business Journal featured 10 of Boston area's top Salvation Army bell ringers, including Hennigan.
Hennigan owns the Hennigan Insurance Agency (an advertiser on West Roxbury Patch). Hennigan has said he saw Corps Sergeant Major Edward Gooding ring the bell for years outside of the supermarket, and that inspired him to organize community bell-ringing.
Hennigan told the Journal that he estimated 150 different volunteers will ring bells for 400 hours altogether.
