The Salvation Army’s annual Christmas Kettle Campaign is set to launch on November 14th, running through to December 24th, 2013 across British Columbia.  With the Christmas season quickly approaching, The Salvation Army is in need of volunteers to host kettles.

The Christmas Kettle Campaign is aimed at raising money and awareness about the continued need for social service programs and resources to support vulnerable individuals throughout Canada during the holiday season and year-round.

The Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Campaign is one of Canada’s largest and most recognizable annual charitable events with all dollars donated staying in the community where the donation was made.   Last year, more than $20 million was raised in the Christmas Kettles nationwide and over $4 million collected in British Columbia alone.

600 of the recognizable Christmas Kettles can be found in 39 communities this year and The Salvation Army is in need of volunteers and looking to the public to help ring bells in support.  The Salvation Army welcomes individuals, groups, companies, clubs, organizations and teams to host a Kettle.  Kettle shifts are available between 2 – 8 hours and from Monday – Saturday.
