Bell ringers for the Salvation Army faced brutal temperatures this year to raise money for local charitable needs. Ken Krall talked with Kim Swisher, a coordinator for the Rhinelander area efforts, about the results of this year's campaign.
November and December is a big time for shopping. It’s also a critical time for people who need assistance. The Rhinelander Salvation Army is seeking bell-ringers to stand outside big stores and collect donations.
WXPR’s Ken Krall sat down with coordinator Kim Swisher.
Swisher says 86 cents out of every dollar goes to help needy families in Rhinelander.
The Rhinelander School District is looking for a new Community Education Coordinator. Kim Swisher announced her resignation today. She’s headed to a brand new communications position with the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.
“It was just too exciting to pass up. I have greatly enjoyed my work with the school district and have learned a great deal serving our students and our community. And this was just something too exciting and too much of an opportunity to walk away from.”
