THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!  At the end of the 73rd Jingle Bells Telethon (thanks to you) we had raised $95,106.68.  You can send those checks to: Jingle Bells Foundation, P.O. Box 635, Alexandria, MN 56308  or donate online at www.jinglebellsalexandria.org.     

The five hour long telethon was live and in person this year at the Alexandria High School Performing Arts Center. On Sunday more than 100 volunteers came to H. Boyd Nelson to distribute food and toy baskets to nearly 700 local families.

The telethon is a coordinated effort between the Jingle Bells Foundation, Selective TV, Gardonville Telephone Cooperative and LiveWire Entertainment.

The Jingle Bells Foundation offers a special thanks to everyone who donated their time, money, and talents! This event brings our communities together to help hundreds of families.
