LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Salvation Army is getting some extra help today from a Kentucky politician.
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Matt Bevin rang the kettle bell at the Kroger on Hubbards Lane Thursday morning. His family and other volunteers joined him in front of the store.
Bevin owns the company that makes all of the Salvation Army kettle bells. He says it's become a family tradition to help the charity organization around the holidays.
"The Salvation Army is one of the most worthy causes that anyone could ever get behind," Bevin said. "They truly do so much good for the community and it's such a direct contact to people in need in the community that I'm just grateful to be able to be a small part of helping out with that."
Bevin is challenging current U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell in next year's primary.
