The Salvation Army Bell Ringers have a lot of ground to cover before the clock runs out. While Santa may be busy loading his sleigh, the ringers are trying to meet this year's goal.
It may be a reflection of the tough economic times but the Salvation Army's Kettle campaign is $30,000 away from their goal and today a special dignitary rang in a sign of support.
Senator Sam Brownback brought his two young children to the Dillons on 21st and Belle. They put on the aprons and rang for a few hours Tuesday afternoon.
All of the money raised during the campaign will support several Salvation Army programs all year long. Currently, the campaign is behind about $220,000. The kettles need to make $31,000 before they close up shop Christmas Eve at 3:00.
