The Salvation Army's annual fundraiser brought in $25,000 to the Miami unit.
That's $2,000 more than last year.
Directors say 2013 was a good year with the number of volunteers being at an all time high.
More than 150 bell ringers of all ages braved the cold weather and long hours to raise funds.
The $25,000 will be used to help hundreds of struggling families in the Miami area.
