Salvation Army Captains Joshua and Rhegan Stansbury were vocal about their desire to someday return to their home state of North Dakota. They got their wish with a transfer to Williston about a year-and-a-half ago, but the city in the heart of an oil boom is not quite the North Dakota they remembered.
With Christmas just around the corner, volunteers from the Salvation Army have begun gathering in front of many Grand Forks area stores. The local chapter’s goal this year is to raise approximately $323,000 for local families in need, according to Grand Forks Commander Jon Fjellman.
One Midwestern retailer has decided not to allow Salvation Army bell ringers to collect donations outside its stores. Mills Fleet Farm Co-President Stewart Mills Jr. tells WAOW-TV in Wausau, Wis., that the company fears that allowing the bell ringers could open the floodgates to others who want to use its property.
A South St. Paul man said a Salvation Army bell-ringer berated him for not putting money in a kettle outside a Twin Cities Walgreens drug store, prompting the shopper to swear off giving to the charity and resulting in the ringer being fired.
About 400 children who need supplies have registered so far. The Salvation Army is accepting backpacks and other school supplies, and well as donations of cash and checks so supplies can be purchased from local stores.
