The Davis Salvation Army Committee would like to thank the holiday bell ringers. We earned $17,881, which includes a generous donation from Nugget Market and Dos Coyotes.
We would like to thank the following businesses that allowed us to ring the bell: Davis post office, CVS/pharmacy East, South Davis Safeway, SaveMart, Davis Farmers Market, Davis Ace and The Avid Reader.
The following groups rang for one or more days: Davis Chinese Church, First Baptist Church, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, St. James Church, University Covenant Church, Rotary Club of Davis, Soroptimist International of Davis and Greater Davis, Davis real estate professionals, Davis Kiwanis Club, Odd Fellows, Davis Lions Club, Davis Lutheran Church of the Incarnation and Davis Lutheran Church.
The Davis Enterprise advertised our bell-ringing season and First Northern Bank generously counted our coins.
The money collected will be used to fund a shopping day in August at JC Penney for 75 Davis school-age children. STEAC, the Short-Term Emergency Aid Committee, will receive $2,000 so it can place $25 gift cards from Nugget Market in each holiday basket. The remainder of the money is used to give food and clothes vouchers to families identified by Davis Joint Unified School District counselors and Davis Community Meals.
