    On Thursday December 22, Carl Churchill visited the Ontario Great Lakes Divisional Headquarters to present a generous gift of money towards the London Christmas Kettle Campaign.

    In 2014, the Churchill Family became aware of the shortfall in revenue towards the campaign that year and decided to match the amount taken in on the last full weekend of the campaign up to $25,000. That amount put the campaign over the top, and Carl has continued to support the campaign every year since then.

    With this donation, and that of many other donors in the area, the campaign did meet the goal of $500,000.00. Donations continue to come in through the mail in advance of the year end and online donations will be calculated in the early part of January.

    London continues to come through in a big way” say Public Relations Representative Shannon Wise. “More and more businesses, corporations and individuals recognize the importance of the work of The Salvation Army in London and increase their givings annually".

    More local articles of the campaign in London and across the Ontario Great Lakes Division will be published in the upcoming weeks.
