Two Local Sheriffs Square off in Red Kettle Challenge

Two Local Sheriffs Square off in Red Kettle Challenge

Beth said they are still looking for volunteer bell ringers at their 21 kettle locations - staffing locations is key, he said, because sites staffed with bell ringers raise far more in donations than those times when kettles are left out on their own.

In a media release sent Dec, 8, Salvation Army Quad Cities Coordinator Scott Shelbourn said both ringers and givers are in shorter supply this year than last. As of Monday, the organization had raised only $22,000 toward its $55,000 red kettle campaign goal, Lt. Mylie Hadden said.

The number of households coming to the food pantry has rose 25 percent from April to September of this year, with the number of families pleading for eviction prevention jumping 53 percent and the number needing utility disconnection relief rose 90 percent.

"Our kettle (donations) are very low this year and we only have two weeks left", said Lynn Meery, a member of the Salvation Army and kettle co-ordinator in New Waterford. Money raised by bell ringers helps to fund the programs at the Salvation Army at the intersection of Highway 99 and West Main Street in Murfreesboro.

Stricker can be seen dancing to music the entire hours-long shifts he volunteers to ring the bell.

The Salvation Army needs to continue to be the resource Fond du Lac community increasingly counts on it to be and asks the community to contribute to red kettles.

"We're struggling this year for most of the same reasons as last year, is that people aren't carrying cash, but we're also finding this year that we're really down in our volunteer bell-ringers, and if you don't have a bell-ringer at a kettle, that kettle brings in absolutely no money", Olson said.

The two teams have met on five previous occasions in the Champions League knockout stages, but Conte added: "The past is the past".

The Salvation Army manages Adopt-A-Family and Angel Trees to gather new toys for needy children.

"I mean how can you not feel good for helping out kids?"

"We're run by volunteers", she said.

Kettles are typically staffed from 11 a.m.to 7 p.m. The donations support holiday programs and year-round services such as the food assistance program.

For example, the center sought to cook 12 to 15 turkeys on Thanksgiving Day to feed people in need.

This comes at a crucial time of year for the organization.

There are 17 Red Kettle locations set up around Garland County this year.
