Area co-ops unite to ring in Christmas

Red Kettle CampaignCooperatives in the Bismarck-Mandan, ND, area got together Dec. 13 to do bell-ringing for the Salvation Army‘s Red Kettle Campaign.

Volunteers are important to the Red Kettle Campaign because bell ringers can mean the difference between an empty kettle and one that raised about $30 per hour, enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries, or shelter an individual for a night.

The co-op ringers posted their experiences on social media using the hashtags #RedKettleReason and #CoopArmy2016.

Take a look at some of the highlights below.
