Brenengen doubles dollars for 2017 red kettle campaign

One local business is helping out the Salvation Army’s red kettle campaign.

On Saturday, Brenengen Auto Group took over the red kettle campaign for “Brenegen Doubles the Dollars” at Valley View Mall.

The auto group kicked off the Salvation Army’s “Match Day” series where on select days it matches every dollar donated in La Crosse County up to $10,000.

Those at Brenengen say that even though the event is just for Saturday, people have been very generous.

“Very, very happy to be able to participate in this and help get them off to a good quick start. And it’s been very encouraging here bell-ringing today, that kettles are getting filled up. In fact, we just talked about maybe having to empty them early because we’ve had such generous giving already today,” said Don Brenengen, of Brenengen Auto.
