Bellringer Fund climbs past $1,000
June 10, 2008 · Updated 4:36 PM
The North Kitsap Bellringer Fund kicked off with a grand beginning Saturday, and donations slowly continue to climb with another $100 in giving this weekend, leaving a lofty but attainable $33,900 left to conquer before the holiday seasons end.
The Poulsbo Lions Raab Foundation set the bar higher than ever this year, with hopes of earning $35,000. This is the funds 56th year of bringing in financial assistance for those in need. Money raised is given out through North Kitsap Fishline for help with bills, food, emergency transportation and Christmas food baskets for area residents.
The fund is staffed by volunteers, meaning more than 99 percent of money earned is plugged right back into the community.
Donations to the fund can be dropped off at Frontier Bank in Poulsbo, or at the North Kitsap Herald office.
Donations can also be mailed to Bellringer Fund, P.O. Box 1244, Poulsbo, WA 98370. The help number of the fund is (360) 697-6087.
The North Kitsap Herald is also collecting toys for Fishlines Toy Shop. Each year the Herald staff collects new toys and items for kids of all ages to help make the holidays that much brighter, which is one of the many reasons the Herald is proud to be your community newspaper. Bring new, unwrapped gifts to the office at 18887 Highway 305, Suite 700.
