    They had raised $395 as of Wednesday morning. Thanks to all the students, parents, teachers, and friends that participated, that whole kettle was filled by Wed. morning. A 2nd kettle was brought in to replace the full one. That 2nd kettle was picked up today. The money from that kettle will be added to the $395. Way to go NPC in helping a great organization like the Salvation Army!
