January 3, 2014

Barnes County's Salvation Army organizers say the buckets were overflowing this year, as donations poured in during the Christmas season. Just in dollar bills and coins alone, the familiar red kettles saw an average of $1,000 each day. Add in checks and other forms of currency, the organization raised $58,047.54 during this year's annual red kettle drive.

Barnes County's Salvation Army continues to raise more money each year. Breaking another record, the organization raised $58,047.54 this year, $18,000 more than its goal and $3,000 more than the amount raised last year.
The local Salvation Army set a goal of raising $40,000 during this year's annual red kettle drive and far exceeded it. Last year, they raised about $55,000.
"Words cannot say how humbled all of us are by the wonderful graces that God has bestowed on us again this year in our Salvation Army bell ringing campaign," said Lee Isensee, chairman.
