The Salvation Army Kettle Campaign is one of Canada’s largest and most recognizable annual charitable events. In addition to the critical fundraising impact of the Campaign, the Christmas kettles boost the Army’s visibility and promotes awareness. In fact, there are more than 2,000 kettle locations across Canada that support a wide range of Salvation Army programs.
For many Canadians, the Christmas kettles are their only point of contact with The Salvation Army all year. Public opinion has identified that more than half of all Salvation Army donors list, “giving to a Christmas kettle,” as their primary method of giving to The Salvation Army. Every dollar donated to the kettle campaign will help families and individuals in our community that cannot meet essential daily needs.
We would like Westmount High School students and staff to help us make a difference during the Christmas Season. We need students and staff of Westmount High School to donate time, energy, and presence at various kettle locations across the Hamilton Wentworth Region. High school students can complete their 40 hour volunteer requirement during the kettle campaign. In 2014, we were able to raise over $640,000, which helped many families across Hamilton and Burlington. Please help us in our great standard of Giving Hope Today to those in need.
As a reminder, funds raised at Christmas kettles, together with other sources of funds, help provide direct, compassionate, hands-on service to 1.8 million people each year in Canada.
Please call us today at 905-521-1660 to find out more about how you can help, or email the Public Relations Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!
