Larkin Hoffman Partners with Salvation Army for Fifth Year of Bell Ringing
For the fifth consecutive year Larkin Hoffman employees partnered with the Salvation Army to raise nearly $5,400. More than 40 Larkin Hoffman volunteers and their families helped kick off the annual fundraiser by staffing red kettles located at Mall of America entrances on Saturday, Nov. 19.
“It is a source of pride throughout the firm that we can assist the Salvation Army in its fundraising efforts,” said Bill Griffith, president of Larkin Hoffman. “Bell ringing on kickoff day is an annual tradition that we will look forward to for many years to come.”
In five years of fundraising, Larkin Hoffman volunteers have brought in more than $25,000 during the Salvation Army’s red kettle kickoff day. The firm has also provided direct financial support to The Salvation Army over the course of the partnership.
"The Salvation Army is grateful for Larkin Hoffman's ongoing support of our red kettle kickoff," said Lt. Col. Lonneal Richardson, leader of The Salvation Army Northern Division." Your many hours of volunteering have brought in tens of thousands of dollars, and helped us bring the hope and joy of Christmas to people in need in our community.”
The Salvation Army’s bell-ringing season will run through the evening of December 24, 2016. One two-hour shift at a red kettle can raise enough money to provide a week’s worth of groceries for a family of four.
