Salvation Army needs volunteers for the upcoming Kettle fundraising campaign

Once again, the Salvation Army is returning to the Christmas Kettle campaign as one of its major fundraisers.

There are more than 2,000 kettle locations across Canada that support a wide range of Salvation Army programs.

According to the Salvation Army, for many Canadians, the Christmas kettles are their only point of contact with the organization all year. in a public opinion poll, more than half of all Salvation Army donors listed “giving to a Christmas kettle” as their primary method of giving to The Salvation Army.

In addition, the Army relies on the co-operation of numerous retail partners to ensure the ongoing success of this campaign. Continued goodwill from these retail partners is critical.

In Wiarton, Doug Lein is Volunteer Coordinator for the Kettle campaign and says that they are looking for volunteers to help out.
“Safety protocols are in place to protect the volunteers and the public,” says Lein, “and everyone has to be double vaccinated.  In addition, there will be newly designed ‘Tip Tap’ pay units that are touchless.”
The Wiarton Corps of the Salvation Army covers a wide geographic area that incudes both South Bruce Peninsula and Northern Bruce Peninsula.
If anyone is willing to become a volunteer to the worthwhile program, contact Lein at the Wiarton Corps of the Salvation Army at 519-534-0353.
There will also be a volunteer sign-up schedule in the office at 576 Edward St., Wiarton Monday to Friday during regular business hours starting after November 15th.
