The Salvation Army has reported it raised 23.1 million dollars nationally through its Christmas Kettle Campaign. This is the second highest total ever raised by the organization during the holiday season and will help the Salvation Army feed, clothe, shelter and empower vulnerable people in 400 communities across Canada.
As we reported earlier the Salvation Army in Flin Flon raised 15, 872 dollars for their 134 Christmas Hampers, their Soup Days and other things they do in the community.
Territorial Secretary for Public Relations and Development Major John Murray says they are grateful to donors, dedicated volunteers and supportive partners for making this campaign a success. He says last year they helped over 1.9 million people and he expects that number to increase this year.
