Salvation Army Sets $32K Goal

November 14, 2012

Valley City’s annual Salvation Army begins its 2012 bell-ringing campaign Friday, Nov. 23, the day after Thanksgiving.

The mission goal of $32,000 is $10,000 greater than last year’s goal, a result of tremendous success last year combined with great need, said Isensee, the Barnes County Salvation Army chairman.

Last year the campaign raised double its goal of $22,000.

The Salvation Army is a Christian organization started in 1852 in England by William Booth and brought to the U.S. in 1880.
