Red Kettle Campaign is underway in Grant County - Bell ringers sought!!

Hello everyone! It is that time of year again where the Grant County Salvation Army has the red kettles out and are looking for folks to ring the bells or sing at our various sites all around the county. It is a fact that the kettles receive more donations if there is someone manning the kettle. All donations stay in Grant County and are used for emergency and disaster services.

Last year we served 196 people with housing, utilities, or transportation needs while assisting 62 children with back-to-school needs. Therefore, as the Treasurer, I am putting out a challenge . . . I would like to see various organizations and businesses in the county pick up the challenge and see which organization can raise the most funds!

We have 3 weeks to raise all the funds we use next year and I would like to see us raise enough to double the above stats (we know there is need because we had to turn folks away last year). So if you would like to take part as an organization or on your own, please contact Stephanie at 218-685-6192 to get on the schedule.

If you would like to challenge another organization, please do so and let’s get these kettles full.

Thanks to everyone for their support!
