Salvation Army Donations Down In 2013

Salvation Army

Jackson Hole’s Salvation Army bell ringers this year raised $17,350 to help those in need in the community.  While that is more than $2000 below last year’s collections, kettle drive coordinator Steve Kallin says the daily collections were significantly higher than they were last year. He says all the fundraising took place basically during four weekends as opposed to the six weekends of the drive last year.  Consequently, he says this year the contributions received during each of the weekends exceeded each of the weekends last year by about $1100. Kallin had high praise for those who volunteered to ring the bells during the four collection weekends, putting in over 350 hours of their time.  Kallin says, “Certainly, if you recall that second weekend [of the drive] they braved some very frigid temperatures; so we really have to thank the bell-ringers, they did a great job this year.” Kallin says the community’s needs still exceed last year’s collections, and he says donations may still be made at counter kettles that will remain in area stores through January second, or by mailing a check to the Salvation Army Jackson Unit at PO Box 257, Jackson 83001.

  • Windy At Times Today, Unseasonably Mild Through Saturday - October 23, 2014
    As high pressure strengthens, warmer air from southwestern portions of the nation will move into the region today.  Conditions will also stay mainly dry throughout much of the state, but winds will be strong and gusty.  Parts of I-25 (Colorado state line to Casper) and I-80 (Cheyenne to Rawlins) could see gusting as high as […]
  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
