Mayors Ring Bells for the Salvation Army

We’re mere days away from Christmas, and the Salvation Army is amping up the Red Kettle campaign with support from local community leaders.

This has been a tough year for the Salvation Army. Donations are down $12,000 from last year’s total, so tomorrow, six area mayors are going to bundle up and do some bell ringing. Every donation made to a mayor’s kettle – even as much as $5,000 – will be matched by finds from an anonymous local benefactor.

Mayor Dave Kleis will start things off from 2:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. outside of the Eastside CashWise. The other 5 mayors will be stationed outside of Walmart, with Waite Park’s Rick Miller from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Sauk Rapids’ Mark Campbell 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., St Joseph’s Alan Rassier 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Sartell’s Joe Perske 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and wrapping up with St. Augusta’s Bob Kroll from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

You can listen to WJON throughout the afternoon for totals.

If you want to give to the Salvation Army this season, but haven’t gotten to it yet, this seems like the right time.
