Pol Light Moment #111 happened on December 3, 2013, when Mike Pence rang bells to help raise funds at Christmas for The Salvation Army. Mike Pence is the current Vice-President of the United States, serving since 2017. He was formerly the Governor of the State of Indiana from 2013-2017. Mike Pence represented Indiana's 2nd Congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2001-2013 before becoming Governor of Indiana.

At about 11 a.m. on December 3, 2013, Mike Pence served as a bell ringer for The Salvation Army at their red kettle at a Kroger in Rochester, Indiana (WNDU.com, Gabby Gonzalez). His efforts helped raise funds as part of the Red Kettle Campaign for The Salvation Army, which since 1891 has been using the traditional to raise funds to help support needy individuals at Christmas and throughout the year.

Mike Pence said about his experience, "There are more than a quarter million Hoosiers out of work and I thought there was no better way to start the holiday season then coming alongside The Salvation Army here in Rochester and reminding Hoosiers that now is a great time of the year to remember those in need (As Quoted by Tom Shaw for WREX.Com)."

Pol Light does not endorse political candidates. We present a brighter side to politics when they are found on either side of the aisle. We don't have to agree with all of a person's politics to recognize these bright moments.
