Thank you to the 32 Rotarians and supporters who greeted shoppers at BOTH Safeway doors, braving a blustery late November Saturday in Anacortes.   The Rotary bell-ringers collected donations of more than $1500 ($1553 to be precise) for the Salvation Army.  With the proceeds from sales of the “must have this season” Rotary Santa hats we'll be able to donate another $200 toward the effort.

Salvation Army Lieutenant Shane Ingram reached out to project lead Jack Curtis to express how grateful he and his team are for the club's support.  He said the $1500 haul is the largest he could remember for an opening weekend!  If you think about how little it costs the Salvation Army to fill one of the food boxes our club packed a few weeks ago, you can see how far these funds can go!

If you’d still like to contribute, bell ringing continues throughout the holiday season and the Salvation Army now has its “Virtual Red Kettle” where you can learn more and donate online.
