Chickasaw County, IA – The Kettle Campaign started in Oakland, California, over 125 years ago. These bell ringers help raise money for those in need around the Christmas season.
Chickasaw County has now been involved with this for three years. This years fund raising efforts brought in a record amount of donations. Liz Markham, one of the organizers in Chickasaw County, says why the county partakes in the Kettle Campaign.
