Many people choose to honor a special friend, or the memory of a special person with a donation each year. You’ll know your contribution truly helps a North Kitsap family in need.

The generosity of our community continues to shine as donations passed $7,000, steady progress toward the North Kitsap Bellringer goal of $25,000. Every day a steady stream of well-wishers arrive to deliver donations to our office.

These donations are needed to pay for food, toys at the holidays, as well as utility bills, clothing, medical expenses, school supplies, rent and transportation costs throughout the year. All money raised through the North Kitsap Bellringer Fund remains in North Kitsap, and the fund has no administrative costs.

Your tax-deductible donation can be made at the North Kitsap Herald office 18887 Highway 305 (office building next to the Dairy Queen, on the lower level), Poulsbo; Kitsap Bank in Poulsbo, 19725 7th Avenue; or mailed to the North Kitsap Herald, P.O. Box 278, Poulsbo 98370. Contributions of $250 or more receive a receipt for the donor’s records.

The 50-year old Bellringer Fund is administered by the Raab Foundation, and the Poulsbo Noon Lions Club.

As donations are received, they will be listed on the front page of the Herald until Dec. 26. Donations may also be made anonymously.

The North Kitsap Herald is also collecting toys for Fishline Food Bank. New, unwrapped toys can also be dropped off at the Herald office between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. each Monday through Friday.
