Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Campaign under way in the Bulkley Valley

The Salvation Army has kicked off its annual Christmas Kettle Campaign in the Bulkley Valley.

This year’s goal is to collect $50,000 in Smithers and $10,000 in Houston, all of which remains in the region.

The Salvation Army says it’s on track to distribute over $75,000 worth of food in the Bulkley Valley. In addition, this past year The Salvation Army in Smithers saw over 4,500 visits to its drop-in centre with an additional 3,000 bowls of soup being served. The Sally Ann also provides emergency assistance with clothing, temporary shelter and emergency transportation.

The Salvation Army says a third of its clients are children, so it’s launched two new efforts to better serve them-a weekend backpack feeding program and a lunch program.

The kettles will out from now until December 23rd with the exception of Sundays.

To volunteer to man a kettle call 250 847-1501 or drop into the offices at 1065 Main Street Smithers or at 3429 10th Street in Houston.
