Red kettle campaign begins in Dane County

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- That familiar ring is back in the air in Dane County. It's the sound of bells ringing for the Salvation Army's red kettle campaign.

The campaign began Friday.

The Salvation Army of Dane County hopes to raise more than $700,000 by December 24. Donations help the group provide meals and toys to families in need.

One volunteer said it's an honor to be able to help out.

"It's really fun ringing. It is really fun ringing. It's ingratiating. People thank me for ringing. They're giving us money and they thank me," said Deb DelCiello, who rang a bell at the Copps grocery store on Whitney Way.

The Salvation Army is in need of more volunteers.  Click here for more information.
