On Thursday, December 20, Walmart Canada will match donations made by individuals to Salvation Army Christmas kettles located in its stores nationwide up to a maximum of $100,000.

The Salvation Army encourages shoppers to visit Walmart on December 20 and make a donation. Every donation makes an impact in the life of someone in need.
