The red kettles have been put away for another year and the final tally has been made. The 2016 Kettle Campaign exceeded its goal by over $100,000 and raised over $3.3 million! The campaign operated in 15 communities across the Alberta & Northern Territories Division, and involved thousands of volunteer bell ringers at hundreds of retail kettle locations during the six weeks leading up to Christmas.

“It has been a tough year economically for many Alberta families,” says Captain W. Mark Stanley, Divisional Secretary for Public Relations and Development. “So to see results like this is an incredible testament to the caring, the spirit, and the generosity of the community we live in.”

Funds raised stay in the communities that they were donated in and allow the local Salvation Army to operate the programs and services most needed in their area throughout the year. With growing demand for services across the Division, the kettle funds will go a long way to meet the increasing need.

“On behalf of The Salvation Army, I want to extend our deepest thanks and gratitude to every volunteer, retailer, and donor who assisted with making this year’s campaign a success,” continues Stanley. “Thanks to you, we are able to continue Giving Hope Today to those who need it most in the year ahead.”
