In the 608: Bells will be ringing for the Salvation Army; here’s how you can help

MADISON, Wis. – The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle Campaign is now underway, and this year is especially important.

The organization needs to raise a minimum of $525,000 between now and Christmas Eve, but their goal is $1.7 million.

The Salvation Army has thousands of open bell-ringing shifts. The average bell ringer raises $200 during each two-hour shift.

Bell ringers are needed at dozens of stores throughout the county, including Woodman’s in Sun Prairie.

Many stores also have a way customers can give at their registers: $1, $5, or any denomination they’re comfortable with.
