The battle will be highlighted by a bell-ringing faceoff between City Manager Kurt Starman and Shasta County Supervisor Les Baugh. The two will compete for donations at 3 p.m. Monday, December 2, just outside the food court area at the Mt. Shasta Mall.
City and County employees have competed for the “bell-ringing hero trophy” each holiday season since 2005. The organization with the most donations at the end of the season is declared the winner. The City of Redding was the winner in 2012.
Regardless of who wins the light-hearted competition, the real winners will be local residents who benefit from the assistance offered by the Salvation Army as a result of the traditional kettle drives.
Anyone interested in participating in the kettle drive is encouraged to contact the Salvation Army at 222-2207.
