The Deer River Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign Coordinator Keith Matson continues to be astounded by the generosity of area residents.

“This year’s campaign has given us a new high mark,” said Matson. “The volunteers staffing the kettles at Northern Star Foods, U-Save and the Cenex Convenience Store collected a total of $4,166.08 for this year’s campaign. It is amazing that our totals keep growing, especially since the economy hasn’t gotten much better.”

A breakdown of what was collected during the Deer River campaign reads as follows: checks/$640; bill denominations were: $100/$100, $50/$50, $20/180, $10/$100, $5/$510, $2/$2, $1/$1,914; coins were: quarters/$494.25, dimes/$110.90, nickles/$39.10 and pennies/$25.83.The content you are trying to access is only available to members.
