Salvation Army’s bell-ringing campaign enters final days 80% short of goal
Annual donation drive provides about a third organization's annual budget
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Time is running out to support The Salvation Army of La Crosse County’s annual campaign, which was at 80 percent of its goal as of Tuesday.
The bell ringers will be staffing kettles through 5 p.m. Christmas Eve.
The annual donation drive provides about a third organization’s annual budget.
“That funds our shelter, our homeless shelter,” said Major Alan Hellstrom. “It funds our case work that we do. Funds our Pathway of Hope program and our meals that we serve.”
Although bell ringing will end Friday, the kettle campaign continues until the end of January.
Donations can be made on the Salvation Army’s website.
That is also where you can sign up to ring bells.
