The goal for 2018 was exceeded.

One lucky bell ringer’s name was drawn Christmas Eve to receive $100. The winner was Chance Vohlken of Greenville.
The money was donated anonymously and did not come out of the campaign’s total collected.
The county chapter uses the money throughout the year to provide assistance to needy persons.
