The Salvation Army Red Kettle Drive is being sponsored again this year by the Grangeville Kiwanis. Did you know that 95 percent of the monies collected are returned to our area through Community Action Agency? That’s an amazing return to help our local people in need.
All other organizations, clubs, groups and even individuals can help by signing up to ring the bell. The more that bell is ringing, the more generosity we can spread throughout our community.
Super 8 has donated pool passes to any students who ring the bell, so that’s an added incentive to help out.
If you have any questions or would like to sign up to ring the bell at a different time, contact Janet at 507-1733 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or Monica at 983-5993 or email email@example.com.
