MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Christmas Eve is the last day the Salvation Army will ring bells outside of stores for this Christmas season.

United States Marines were out at 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. ringing bells for donations to raise money for the Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army has reached 60 percent of its $300,000 goal.

“I want to say thank you, thank you so much to Morgantown, West Virginia as a whole, there were people that give, and we have seen it during our Christmas toy donation, and even during our bell ringing. So I want to say thank you so much for supporting the Salvation Army during the season and beyond,” said Lieutenant Nicole Greenland.

Lieutenant Greenland said the Marines usually make a lot of money on the last day, so she hopes their goal is met, so the Salvation Army can continue their services in Monongalia and Preston counties.
