Salvation Army honored for topping goal
space
The very successful fund-raising campaign that added the element of ringing bells during the late fall and holiday season came to a formal end Sunday evening with a dinner for the volunteers who made the campaign for Salvation Army funds a record-breaking success again.

Tom Bremer, who oversees the Salvation Army’s district that include Antigo and Langlade County, was obviously pleased when he addressed those attending the volunteer banquet.

You surpassed the $100,000 goal, he said, adding that the drive actually collected $110,000.

That’s a new record, he added.

Bremer said topping the goal was especially important this year when there were so many disasters that demanded public contributions.

There was some donation fatigue, Bremer said, citing the natural disasters and the damage they did in the Deep South during 2017.

He stressed that the local management of the campaign and the volunteers made all the difference in Antigo.

Data from the 2016-2017 released at the meeting showed that the organization provided lodging for 59, 216 got rent help and another 340, aid with utilities.

Transportation assistance was provided for 254 and health care for 52.

The amount of funds expended was $91,300, Bill, Beth and Caven Kelly explained.

For now, the red kettles are being tucked away, but they will be ready to go in November. The Kellys, Nick Salm and all those volunteers will be ready to do the right thing, again.
