The Alton Salvation Army is trying a new contest to raise awareness of where they are ringing bells, and hope that generates more donations. The information was revealed last week on Z-1570's Salvation Army Children's Day. Lieutenant Bryan Ellison says he will be launching the "Where's Lieutenant" contest this week.
Again, that number is 623-7050. The goal of this year's Red Kettle campaign is $114,000. The Children's Day broadcast generated $3,785 for the Red Kettle Campaign, which surpassed last year's total by more than 1-thousand dollars. If you made a pledge on Tuesday, remember you can drop it in any Salvation Army red kettle by Christmas Eve, you can mail it or drop it off, to 525 Alby Street in Alton, 62002.
