On Saturday, December 7th, we saw approximately 175 Viterbo community members come together across La Crosse county to help raise money for the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign.  We had 20 different locations, with 10 groups stepping up to adopt locations.  This year, we shattered our previous record by raising $7,698.09 in our one day of ringing!  Thanks to everyone who participated and went outside of their comfort zones.  Special shout-out to Matthew who made sure the Walgreens on West Ave had a bell ringer all day!
