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.
