The local Salvation Army has just over a week to go to complete its annual Christmas fundraising drive. Chairman Ed Paulson said collections are running slightly ahead of last year’s pace when a big late surge led to $38,000 being raised. This year’s collection is roughly $26,500.
Ed Paulson, who heads up the local Salvation Army winter holiday fundraiser, says look for bell ringers starting Monday at two River Falls grocery stores: Dick’s Fresh Market and EconoFoods. The idea is to capitalize on the big grocery boom leading up to Thanksgiving Day. Typically Salvation Army bell ringers with the kettle stands don’t show up until the day after Thanksgiving. This year in River Falls, until Christmas, look for bell ringers stationed at Dick’s, EconoFoods and also at ShopKo. For more on this story, read the Nov. 24 print edition of the Journal.
