Mayo Clinic Health System in Albert Lea makes donation

Mayo Clinic Health System employees in Albert Lea and Austin volunteered last week to ring bells to help raise funds for the Salvation Army red kettle campaign. According to a press release, the employees rang bells for a total of 20 hours at Hy-Vee in Albert Lea and Shopko in Austin.

Mayo Clinic Health System pledged to match donations collected up to $1,000.

“In honor of our staff who volunteered their time and the many who showed their support for the much needed services provided by The Salvation Army,” said Associate Administrator at Mayo Clinic Health System in Albert Lea and Austin Kris Johnson.

“Mayo Clinic Health System in Albert Lea and Austin is happy to contribute the full $1,000 match to the Red Kettle Campaign this year.”

The Salvation Army in both Austin and Albert Lea help those in need. Programs include assistance paying a bill or a more long-term solution, meal programs and food shelves, clothing and household items, and medical assistance, among others.

“We want to thank the Salvation Army for allowing us to participate in this important campaign,” Johnson said.
