Help WHO 13 fill the Red Kettles and collect toys for kids today


WEST DES MOINES and ALTOONA, IOWA — It is the 13th of December and WHO 13 is making some noise to make the holidays brighter for metro families. The WHO 13 team is ringing bells for the Salvation Army all day Monday at Scheel’s in West Des Moines and Bass Pro Shops in Altoona. We’re asking for your donations at the kettle and also donations of toys to help the Salvation Army finish filling wish lists for families in their Christmas Assistance Program. As an added bonus, a donor has stepped up with an offer to double all donations collected at metro Red Kettles today, up to $10,000. You’ll find the WHO 13 team inside the front entrances to Scheel’s and Bass Pro Shops until 8:00pm on Monday. Stop by, say ‘hi’ and make a donation!

Several shoppers stopped and took the time to help make the holiday season better for metro families. One shopper at Scheel’s highlighted that it is not about what you give, rather than just the act itself.

“Because there are so many people that need help that are less fortunate. It wasn’t much but i hope it will help,” said Susan Andrews.

Another shopper at Scheel’s said that this year might even be more important to give back as people in the area are still dealing with loss or financial problems due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“With covid and stuff a lot of people are struggling right now so it is a good way to help people out in a small way,” said Matthew Butcher.
