The Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Campaign began over the weekend in Flin Flon. Organizer Sherry Trudeau says the kettles raise money to support their programs. She explains one hundred percent of their kettle donations is allocated to family services with about two thirds of that money used for Christmas hampers, the rest is used throughout the year funding other family services such as clothing, vouchers, soup days, etc. She adds their kettle campaign runs through to December 24th and if you’d like to volunteer please call the Salvation Army at 204-687-7812.
The kettles will be out at various locations every Thursday, Friday and Saturday until December 21st and then on Monday and Tuesday the 23rd and 24th.
