(WKOW) — The Salvation Army needs your help.
The agency says seventy percent of the shifts for kettle bell ringers are still open.
Wake Up Wisconsin anchor Rebecca Ribley and reporter Michelle Alfini were among WKOW staff members who volunteered to ring bells at Metcalfe’s Hilldale on Tuesday. With your donations, we were able to help bring in more than $800.
The kettle bell campaign is the largest fund-raiser for the entire year for the Salvation Army.
“We do a lot of different programs,” said Captain Andrew Shiels, Dane County Coordinator for the Salvation Army. “We do our homeless services. We do a single women’s shelter. We do a family shelter. We do a community center. We do an after school program. We do a lot of different kinds of programs all to help people put their lives back together or keep stability in their lives.”
The Salvation Army hopes to raise $525,000 during the holiday season.
