Thank you to local businesses matching donations!
The gracious donation matching has help raise needed funds for local emergency priorities with your coverage.
FOR ANTIGO TIMES
Businesses that match kettle donations and community groups that ring are really making a difference for our local campaign. Lakeside initiated the kettle match idea over 15 years ago, leading to many more individuals and businesses joining them by sponsoring a kettle match day at local businesses. The kettle match and “I Earned a Bucket Pass” buttons for donations of $25 or more and all the volunteer bell ringers help our local campaign exceed $100,000 of donations each year for local emergency needs.
Antigo Special Olympics made the difference between an empty kettle and one that raises about $30 per hour – enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries or shelter an individual for a night. They were at Lakeside Pharmacy and Grocery on December 7th and the 8th. They were entertaining the customers with bell ringing, Christmas greetings and lots of Christmas Carols.
Individuals and groups can still sign up to ring at Lakeside, Pick n Save, Fleet Farm and Wal-Mart between now and Christmas at www.registertoring.com or call Kelly at 715-623-7838. Donations made at kettles in Langlade County or mailed to Salvation Army, Langlade County, 1630 N Superior Street, Antigo will be used for emergency needs in Langlade County.
