Sally Ann short of goal

As of Dec. 24, 2012, The Salvation Army in Campbell River has reached $101,500 in its annual Christmas Kettle fundraising campaign.

Dec. 24 was the final day of their Christmas Kettle campaign but they will gladly accept donations after Christmas as well. The money they raise at Christmas constitutes the main portion of their Community Services budget and goes towards staffing and operating such programs as their soup kitchen, Family Services assistance (clothing, household items, to families in need) and emergency grocery assistance.

“We thank the people and businesses of Campbell River who have already been such a great support and are hopeful of reaching our goal before the end of the month,” said Capt. Gord Taylor, Salvation Army.
