The Grand Forks Salvation Army Major is optimistic the organization will reach its fundraising goal and raise more money than ever before.

It was a record-setting year for bell ringing in Grand Forks. The Salvation Army was aiming to raise $110,000 but exceeded that by $30,000.

The entire Christmas fundraising goal is $280,000. That includes mail-in donations, along with others. Right now the Salvation Army is at 80% of that goal. They have until January 15th, and Major Baugh is hopeful.

Major Harold Baugh says, “We get a pretty good influx about this time of the year. People remember that they didn't write that check, and they come through, so that's always good for us.”

If you would like to help out, you can send a check to:
