The Salvation Army continues to find new ways to raise money for the relief effort in Haiti. On Saturday kettles will be set up in seven liquor board stores around Regina to collect donations.

Captain Steven Cameron with The Salvation Army says this time they are focusing on providing a specific type of aid. “We’re really focusing on housing, so tents for the short term and then working on long-term sustainable housing after that.” Cameron adds that housing will become a major issue once the rainy season hits Haiti.

After Saturday people can still donate by dropping by The Salvation Army’s office at 2240 13th Ave. anytime during the week.
