A Bell Ringing Marathon in Baxter

For the past four years, Helen McCombie of Hudson, Wis. has volunteered to bell ring 30 hours straight in Hudson, Wis. to raise $30,000 for The Salvation Army. With recent snowstorms crippling donations to The Salvation Army, this year her son in Rapid City, S.D. and close friend in Brainerd, Minn. have agreed to do the same.

Starting at 5 a.m. on Dec. 20, all three will bell ring nonstop until Dec. 21 at 11 a.m. Shonna Baldwin, will ring in Baxter.

Their goal is to each raise at least $30,000 for their local Salvation Army.
Donations to The Salvation Army have fallen about 10 percent compared to last year.

Donations for Shonna in Brainerd can be made online at or mail a check to The Salvation Army, 208 South Fifth Street, Brainerd, MN 56401.
