The Sal­va­tion Army kicked off its an­nual Ket­tle Cam­paign on Mon­day, Novem­ber 26th run­ning un­til De­cem­ber 24.

The 2018 cam­paign kicked off at Su­per­store with Mayor Fraser Tolmie mak­ing the first do­na­tion. The Ket­tle Cam­paign aims to raise $55,000 in cash, as part of the Sal­va­tion Army’s mis­sion to sup­ply ham­pers to fam­i­lies in need this Christ­mas. Sal­va­tion Army vol­un­teers will be at seven stores across the city, be­tween 10am and 6pm daily where res­i­dents will have an op­por­tu­nity to give dona­tions. Par­tic­i­pat­ing stores in­clude, Su­per­store, Sobeys Liquor Store, Safe­way, Town ‘N’ Coun­try Mall, Co-op and Wal­mart.

Di­rec­tor of Com­mu­nity and Fam­ily Ser­vices at the Sal­va­tion Army, Ma­jor Dan Broome says the cam­paign got off to a great start.

Ma­jor Broome noted how­ever, that more vol­un­teers are still needed for this year’s Ket­tle Cam­paign for the up­com­ing weeks. “The cam­paign is off to a great start. We will be at seven (7) lo­ca­tions in the city. We are how­ever still look­ing for more vol­un­teers. So far, the week has been good, but we’d like to fill a few empty holes for the weeks go­ing for­ward in this cam­paign. We need peo­ple who will stand with out ket­tles, es­pe­cially if we can get younger per­sons or high school stu­dents who are look­ing for some com­mu­nity ser­vice vol­un­teer hours or fam­i­lies who’d like to show their chil­dren what it means to give back. Any age is wel­come to join us.”
