FDL Salvation Army Bucket Brigade North And South Locations Today
There’s a twist to the Salvation Army’s annual bucket brigade this morning. Drivers can contribute at two different locations. Bucket Brigade North will be located in the KFIZ and 107.1 The Bull parking lot on Winnebago Drive in Fond du Lac. Salvation Army Captain Telinda Wilson says there is also a Bucket Brigade South location. It is at the Cobblestone Square across from the Fire Station on South Main Street. Michels Corporation will be sweetening the pot by matching up to $8,000 in donations. If the Salvation Army raises the $8,000 to match that contribution it will represent 10 percent of their red kettle campaign goal. This season the Salvation Army is trying to raise $160,000 to help pay for the services it provides to the community.
