The Goderich Signal-Star - - HISTORY -

The Sa l v at i o n Army Sun­coast C i t a d e l has w ra p p e d up a n o t h e r record- break­ing Christ­mas Kettle Cam­paign sur­pass­ing it’s $ 82,000 tar­get, col­lect­ing over $ 86,250. Af­ter hav­ing a record year in 2015 of slightly over $ 83,000, of­fi­cials at The Sa l v a t i o n A rmy were un­sure they would ever match that to­tal again, and so they are “ex­tremely pleased” that “the com­mu­nity has shown such tremen­dous sup­port” in help­ing them achieve a new record. With just over a week to go in the Kettle Cam­paign it looked as though they would not meet their goal, yet the com­mu­nity rea l l y dug deep into their pock­ets to lift them over their tar­get. All money raised through the Kettle Cam­paign stays lo­cal to help op­er­ate The Sal­va­tion Army Com­mu­nity and Fam­ily Ser­vice food banks in Goderich and Clin­ton.

The money was col - lected in Goderich, Clin­ton and Kin­car­dine.
