The Salvation Army annual Christmas Kettle campaign got underway on the weekend. Major Debbie Allen says they’ll be out ringing the bells beside the kettles Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at the Co-op and Walmart with some occasions at the Royal Bank raising money to support their programs. She says most of the money, two thirds of it is used directly for the Christmas Hamper program and the other third is used partially for Soup Days and other family services programs that they run.
Major Allen says they still need some volunteers to be out with the kettles during the day some Thursdays and Fridays. If you can spend an hour with a kettle call the Salvation Army at 204-687-7812.
