Bell Ringers Exceed Goal

Salvation Army's Bell Ringer Kettle program has come to an end, but they have good news to report. The Salvation Army has exceeded their goal of raising $50,000.

The bell ringers raised $53,050. That money will stay here in Angelina County to help with purchasing Christmas gifts. Any leftover funds will go into next year's budget.

Salvation Army reps say it was a tough year but, because businesses like Wal-Mart let them start ringing 14 days earlier than normal, they were able to make their goal.

They appreciate everyone who participated.
