Salvation Army 2018 Kettle Campaign now underway
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.”
If you would like to volunteer for this year’s Kettle Campaign, call the Salvation Army at 306-692-5899.
