WEST LAFAYETTE, IN (WLFI) — Members of the Purdue community rang bells for the Salvation Army outside of the West Lafayette Walmart Wednesday.
Faculty, students, athletes, and alumni all braced the cold weather for a great cause.
They rang the bells with smiles on their faces and competition on their mind.
Purdue and IU are challenging each other to see who can raise the most money and help those in need.
They rang from 4 pm to 9 pm tonight.
Corey Sanchez has been volunteering for the Salvation Army for years.
He says the generosity of others never fails to surprise him.
"I've seen so many people that, you know, express genuine joy in giving. And I've seen so many more people give than I anticipated in just those 30 minutes that I've been here," Sanchez said.
