Bellringer getting closer to goal

The donations keep rolling in at a steady pace for Bellringer, which is less than $3,000 shy of this year’s ambitious $35,000 goal.

In the final stretch of the campaign, donations to the fund can be dropped off at Frontier Bank in Poulsbo or the North Kitsap Herald office, 18887 Hwy 305, Suite 700.

Donations can also be mailed to Bellringer Fund, P.O. Box 1244, Poulsbo, WA, 98370. All donations are tax deductible through the Raab Foundation, a non-profit created by the Lions Club.
