(UPDATE: Purdue University and Indiana University Alumni recently rang against one
another at Walmart to see who could collect the most donations for The
Salvation Army. Purdue collected $1,688.76 to best IU’s $478.50. The total for the event was $2,167.26.
“We appreciate the support of these two alumni associations and their willingness to ring the bell for The Salvation Army,” noted Lt. Esteban Pommier, director.)
The Alumni Associations of Indiana University and Purdue University will ring bells for The Salvation Army from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, to compete to see who can collect the most monies.
Purdue alum will be at the north door (grocery door) at Walmart in Warsaw and IU alum will be at the south door (retail/pharmacy) door. The friendly competition has been held over the years to support the efforts of The Salvation Army and express pride in their alma maters. Alums are encouraged to join the ringers at each location to cheer on their team.
Other groups or individuals interested in ringing can sign up online at registertoring.com.
