The sound of the Salvation Army bells can now be heard in Greenville.
Mary Young, bell ringing campaign chairman, said the giving got off to a good start on Monday, November 23. She said the total is $8,145.31. As of Saturday, the total was higher than what it was at the same time last year. She also pointed out that there were limited bell ringing hours at Dollar General early on, which makes the high total even more amazing.
