Minnesota native and business mogul Harvey Mackay is bell ringing for The Salvation Army for the 15th year on Dec. 6. Even better, he pledges to match all donations made to his kettle.

Mackay will be at the Lunds & Byerlys in St. Louis Park from 2 -5 p.m.

“The Salvation Army been one of the most pleasurable organizations I have worked with in my career,” Mackay said.  “I salute and applaud every volunteer.”

Mackay says he may even hand out some of his best-selling books at the kettle today.
