Bellringer just shy of $30,000 goal

POULSBO — Bellringer pulled a little closer to its $30,000 goal before Christmas, but it’s not there yet.

By 8 a.m. Thursday, Bellringer had collected $1,420, which is a big drop from the flood of donations it’s received during the last couple of weeks.

Hope still springs eternal and maybe Santa will come through Christmas Day to help put the fund over the top as it continues serving the needy in the North End.

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, 18887 Highway 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.
