Mayor Dan Pope said the red kettle fundraising effort is about so much more than tradition. "It's not simply for Christmas", said Major Bonita McGory, Core Officer with the Salvation Army North Bay.

Other donations will be collected in red kettles by bell ringers at retail locations around North Platte.

Bell ringers are to helping feed hundreds of families each year. Funding for the Salvation Army Cortland Center's First Annual Thanksgiving Basket Giveaway was provided by the Ralph R. Wilkins Foundation Inc.
