Have you noticed the bell ringers outside of Wal-Mart?
These people are from the Salvation Army raising money for those who need it. All you have to do is place any extra change you have from shopping in the red kettle. The Salvation Army Red Kettles have been an American tradition since 1891, helping raise financial support for critical Salvation Army programs and services year round.
A local organization known for meeting the needs of people in the Hutchinson County community received a helping hand in return in the form of turkeys.
Four local men, Jimmy Anderson of Conoco Phillips, Mike Bethel of Ardent, Lanny Ferrell of WHM, and Scott Fowles donated 50 turkeys to High Plains Helping Hand for the holiday season. Anderson, Bethel, and Ferrell visited the organization Thursday to make the delivery.
Carolyn Poindexter, who is with High Plains Helping Hand, said the organization was â€śabsolutelyâ€ť blessed to receive such a generous donation.
