Bellringer surpasses $10,000 mark

POULSBO — Bellringer continues to make headway as donations deliver much-needed doses of holiday cheer.

By 9 a.m. Monday, Bellringer had collected $4,855, which is another step toward its $30,000 goal.

Firefighters came through with a large $1,000 donation to give the fund a much-needed boost, and hope their donation will ignite the giving fire once more.

Mike’s Car Wash in Poulsbo remains in the giving spirit as owner Mike Brooks is once again donating a portion of his proceeds throughout this month to give the fund a boost.

Bellringer, a part of the Raab Foundation, which is administered by the Poulsbo Noon Lions Club, provides one-time assistance of food, help with bills, emergency transportation and Christmas food baskets through North Kitsap Fishline.

Donations to the fund can be dropped off at the Kitsap Bank branch in Poulsbo or the North Kitsap Herald, 18887 State Route 305, Suite 700. Donations can also be mailed to Bellringer Fund, P.O. Box 1244, Poulsbo, WA 98370.

The help number for the fund is (360) 697-6087.
