FLOWOOD, Miss– The Salvation Army could still use help meeting their goal of $500,000 before Christmas, so Governor Phil Bryant and First Lady Deborah Bryant lend a hand to ring a bell.
It’s chilly and rainy, but that’s not stopping Governor Phil Bryant and First Lady Deborah Bryant from ringing their bells for Salvation Army in front of Belk in Flowood.
“We’re ringing the bell for the kettle for the Salvation Army, helping to raise money for the kids who may not otherwise have Christmas,” say Mrs. Bryant, “we just hope everyone can come out and help do the same.”
The Bryants will be at Belk in Flowood until five o’clock in order to help the Salvation Army meet its five hundred thousand dollar goal.
“We’re here to get what we can,” says Mrs. Bryant, “my goal is to help them meet their goal.”
The Salvation Army is still accepting toys for the Angel Tree as well as kettle donations. Aside from holiday support, the organization feeds about fifty-three thousand Mississippians each year.
