For the second year, Associated Bank will match all Red Kettle donations at over 50 locations in Brown County this “Black” Friday, November 29, 2013. The match will go up to $10,000 and is the first public match of the 2013 Christmas Season in Brown County.

“Associated Bank is proud to support The Salvation Army in their 2013 campaign with this $10,000 match,” said Judy Docter, Executive Vice President - Chief Human Resources Officer, Associated Bank. “We truly hope the community takes time to visit the red kettles throughout the holiday season, but especially on November 29, as we want to meet this $10,000 match that will help to provide basic needs and services to those who need it most.”

To encourage donations Associated Bank employees will be ringing bells at the Big Red Kettle in Bay Park Square Mall from midnight to 8:00 p.m. on Black Friday.

The match by Associated Bank will help The Salvation Army of Brown County reach its 2013 Christmas Campaign Goal of $1.15 million. Funds raised through the Christmas Campaign support social service programs of The Salvation Army of Brown County throughout the year.
