Today was a beautiful day to be ringing the bells for the Salvation Army, and as a special treat, we were joined by our good luck charm — our dog Boomer! We couldn’t have asked for a more spectacular winter day and Boomer was the big draw. Few could pass by his adorable face and not drop some money in the bucket!
Once again, we were the ones most blessed by this opportunity to help out the Salvation Army, and each year we experience something that has not happened before. In addition to the many folks who stopped to thank us and/or put a few dollars in the bucket, this year we had a “drive up” drop off as a man pulled up beside us to hand off his donation. And Boomer was the recipient of much love and attention from the passersby, even receiving a large milk bone from one generous man who also made a donation to the Red Kettle.
BIG THANKS to our friends who drove (and rode their motorcycle) across town to make a donation to the Red Kettle, as well as to those who “happened upon” us and also donated. It was wonderful to see your smiling faces and your support always makes the time fly by!
If you were unable to come visit us today, please consider making a donation to another Red Kettle and help those in need this Christmas season.
Wishing you a blessed Christmas and a healthy and prosperous 2018!
