Salvation Army Up 13% Over Last Year With Yearly Fundraiser

So far this year, the local Salvation Army has raised about $86,000 through the Red Kettle Bell Ringing Campaign.

The organization was concerned because they can no longer ring bells outside the Target store. The store has been the busiest location in the past. Locally it brought in about $16,000 a year, nationally it raised $8 million. New rules now allow bell-ringers to set up outside Wal-Mart stores only a few times a week.

Despite the obstacles, donations to the local Salvation Army are up 13% over last year.
