Twenty-one area businesses donated to put people to work with pay through bell ringing. This initiative provided people with a meaningful assignment and a chance to earn money before the holidays while benefiting the Winona community. The donations provided the means to pay the associates and help them support themselves and families during the holiday season and also help the Salvation Army during this time of need.
Area businesses include: Pac ‘N Mail; Merchant’s Bank; Gail Cyert, independent Norwex consultant; Minnesota State College Southeast; Kubilay Gok from Winona State University; Endless Images Photography; Goodview Business Association; Leighton Broadcasting; Ace Auto; Sport N Spine Physical Therapy; Jeanne Hadke Massage, LLC; Cotter Schools; Black Horse Bar and Grill; Winona Veterinary Hospital; AJ Kanz, American Family; Altra Federal Credit Union; Bub’s Brewing Company; Click Click Cleaners; Coldwell Banker; Winona National Bank; and others who wish to remain anonymous.
Express greatly appreciates the partnership for this initiative and the commitment to the community.
