London’s Kettle Campaign Sets New Record


The Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Campaign final numbers are in, and several records have been broken.

A total of $648,173 was raised in London, surpassing its goal of $500,000. There was also a record set for online donations, $10,815, made to the city of London through FillTheKettle.com

“We are blown away by the generosity of Londoners,” says Shannon Wise, the Public Relations & Development Representative for the Ontario Great Lakes Division. “We want to sincerely thank our donors, volunteers and community partners for their kindness and dedication.”

Every dollar raised in London is used to support local families in need during the holidays. The Christmas Hamper Program was able to provide food hampers to 5,117 local families this past Christmas and 6,663 children received a bag of toys.

Nationally, our campaign set a new fundraising record. $23.5 million was raised, exceeding our goal of $21 million. The annual holiday campaign seeks donations from the public to help millions of Canadians living in poverty.
