The Salvation Army’s annual Christmas Kettle Campaign is set to launch on November 14th, running through to December 24th, 2013 across British Columbia.
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 British Columbia 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 Christmas Kettles nationwide and over $4 million collected in British Columbia alone.
The Salvation Army continues to offer donors a variety of ways to support to this year’s Christmas Campaign: by way of physical Christmas Kettles or via The Salvation Army’s Fill the Christmas Kettle program, which allows donors to contribute online by visiting www.FilltheKettle.com The Salvation Army also accepts phone, mail, and walk-in donations. Phone donations can be made by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1-800-725-2769) or by texting “GIVEBC” to 45678 to donate $5 through most mobile carriers in Canada.
“Every donation received will make a difference in the life of someone in need,” shares, Patricia Cuff, Divisional Secretary for Public Relations and Development for The Salvation Army in British Columbia. “And, The Salvation Army will stretch donations as far as it can, to help as many people as we can.” 86 cents of every dollar donated to The Salvation Army is used directly in charitable activities – exceeding the Canada Revenue Agency guideline of 65 percent donation efficiency.
