Bellringer passes $25,000 mark

POULSBO — Bellringer might just find $30,000 underneath its tree Christmas morning as it nears its 2005 campaign goal. By 1 p.m. Monday, $4,797.93 was added to the fund, putting its ultimate goal in sight.

However, with the good news comes an added sense of urgency as the fund hasn’t reached its intended target quite yet.

Mike’s Car Wash in Poulsbo remains in the giving spirit as owner Mike Brooks is once again donating a portion of his proceeds 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 office, 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.
