C.M.R. and Great Falls High school students rang the Salvation Army’s bell this past Saturday, raising a combined total of $660.00.
The two high schools were in a friendly Key Stone competition, much like the Cross-town Rivalry, to see who could raise the most money.
Both schools worked an eight hour shift, ringing their bell all across the city.
For the students who participated, they aren’t sure if they’ll make it out again this year; but they know it’s something they always want to be a part of.
“I know that Salvation Army is a really great organization and I know they can use all the support they can get. All of the donations are going directly to them and it’s staying locally which is really nice,” says Amiya Williams, a junior at C.M.R. high school.
“I think after I want to get involved with a Salvation Army, whether it’s volunteering there or ringing bells every holiday season,” explained Carly Cushman, senior at C.M.R. high school.
Last year Great Falls High took home the trophy, but this year, C.M.R. came back for the win.
They’re hoping to include Central High school in next year’s friendly competition.
