Salvation Army raises $30,000 in Lucas County

Pictured at left, Patti Bisgard with Lucas County Salvation Army, accepts a check for $400 from Hy-Vee store manager Robin Critchlow, right. The money was raised for the Salvation Army's annual Red Kettle campaign during the holiday season by holding a "Round Up at the Register" event. The donation was part of a record $30,000 raised in Lucas County since Oct. 1.

On behalf of the Lucas County Salvation Army Unit

We would like to express our sincere thanks to the 300 volunteers who have given an hour or sometimes several hours of their time to ring the bell for this year’s annual Red Kettle Campaign.

Thank You to everyone for their generous contributions to the Salvation Army. Ninety percent of the record setting $30,000 received since the beginning of our October 1st year remains right here in Lucas County providing emergency assistance for those in need in our community.

Special thanks to Hy-Vee, Dollar General, Pipers, Bomgaars and True Value for allowing us to set up kettles and stands at their business.

Thank you to Chariton Newspapers.

Finally, a heartfelt thank You to these organizations and businesses for “Adopting Time” to ring the bell. Your service is what truly makes this campaign a success !
