Salvation Army holds Red Kettle Ring Off in South Bend and Mishawaka
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The Salvation Army had its Red Kettle Ring Off on Tuesday — a charity initiative that raises money for the Kroc Center in South Bend.
The Ring Off is setup as a competition between the Cities of South Bend and Mishawaka.
Each city raises as much money as they can in a 12 hour period.
The Ring Off began at 6:30 a.m. and lasted until 6:30 p.m.
Wayne Barker, the Superintendent of Mishawaka Schools, says despite the competition, everyone wins.
"We'll I'm excited to be here and be a part of the friendly competition,” Barker said. “Obviously, we'd love for Mishawaka to do well but everyone's going win with what happens here today."
All the money will go toward the Family Resource Center for the Kroc, which provides food and financial assistance to those in need.
Donations can be made in person or online via google/apple pay or the Kroc Center’s website.
