Parkway's Jim Hennigan Among 10 Salvation Army Bell Ringers Honored by Boston Business Journal

Jim Hennigan has been running the Parkway Kettle Campaign for more than 10 years in the Parkway area.


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.

Congratulations, Jim, for the work you do to help the Salvation Army in the community. Since the first year, the West Roxbury Business and Professional Association has been honored to taken a day to "ring the bell" and I don't know anyone who doesn't enjoy doing this good deed. It really makes a difference when neighbor meets neighbor at the red kettle. Jim has managed to organize a successful campaign and he is one of those special people who makes West Roxbury such a great community in which to live and work.
