Caddo, Bossier Sheriff’s ‘Red Kettle Challenge’ Friday
It's that time of year again, the Christmas season! And once again this year Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington has challenged Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator to the 2nd Annual “Ring the Bell” Red Kettle Challenge Friday, Dec. 8 to raise money for The Salvation Army.
Bossier deputies and staff will be ringing their bells at Kroger on Airline Drive from 10am til 6pm, Friday, while Caddo deputies will be clanging away at their location, 10 til 6, at Kroger on Ellerbe Road.
The friendly competition is to help raise money for The Salvation Army, a ministry "motivated by the love of God to meet human needs – feeding the hungry, clothing the needy, housing the homeless, and supporting people throughout the community."
Last year, Bossier pulled out a victory over the Caddo folks, $3,647 to $2,745.
