State Rep. David Cook and Mansfield Mayor Michael Evans are proud to announce that Mansfield has won the Salvation Army's Red Kettle Mayoral Challenge.

Through friendly competition between neighboring cities including Mansfield, Arlington, Dalworthington Gardens, Pantego, Hurst, Euless, Kennedale, Forest Hill and North Richland Hills, the region raised more than $110,000 for those in need. Mansfield residents and businesses raised the most out of its neighbors with $61,629.

Mansfield has won the award 14 out of 15 years. Evans, along with help from city staff, local Boy Scouts, members of the Bethlehem Baptist Church, and more, rang the iconic Salvation Army bells around the city Dec. 9.

"Giving is what the holiday season is truly about and I am proud Mansfield can hoist this trophy one again and help those most in need," Evans said. "Much thanks to the generous hearts of our residents, businesses, school district, city staffers and many others."
