Christmas kettle donations up

DIXON – The Salvation Army’s Christmas Kettle Drive, coordinated by the Kiwanis Club, raised more than $11,300 through donations at various locations throughout Dixon.

According to John Holthaus, Kiwanis Bell Ringing chairman, the money represents about a 30 percent increase from last year.

Nearly 270 volunteers rang bells at kettles for 250 hours during a 6-week period. Volunteers were from Crest Foods, KSB Hospital, St. Vincent de Paul Society, Ashton FFA, Boy Scouts Troop 85, Dixon Golden K, Rotary Club, Dixon High School Key Club, Faith Christian Key Club, and Kiwanis Club of Dixon.

Kettles were placed at Walmart, Dixon Food Center, Shopko, County Market, ACE Hardware, Culver’s, Oliver’s Corner Market, Snyder’s Pharmacy, and Kelly Williamson Mobil. 

Nearly $4,390 was raised at Walmart; the company will match the total.
