HUDSON -- Shopper upon shopper answered the bell this week during a fundraising campaign.

The Salvation Army's annual 30-hour Red Kettle Campaign bell-ringing marathon concluded Thursday, Dec. 19, at County Market.

Media and fundraising manager Angela Moulton said the event raised a total of $85,000. New Richmond resident Noah Wiedenfeld held a parallel fundraiser at the New Richmond Walmart for more than 26 hours, then went to the Hudson location to help bellringers there complete their 30-hour marathon.
