LETTERS: Kettle campaign begins

Volunteering is a great way to generate the spirit of Christmas.

This year I am coordinating the Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Campaign.

Please support this important initiative which provides so much for so many in our community. Orientation night begins at 6.30 p.m.,  Nov. 17, at the Salvation Army Church on South Main Street, and two hour shifts are available at various locations around town from Nov. 21 – Dec. 24.

Volunteering is a great way to generate the spirit of Christmas. And volunteering is an effective way to help those in need. As The Salvation Army embarks on its Christmas campaign, it counts on the goodwill of volunteers to make Christmas memorable for people who need care.

From the Army’s iconic red kettle, to Christmas hampers, to feeding the hungry, people from all walks of life are making a difference in the lives of those who need help in some of the darkest days of their lives. We have set up a web-based sign up on Volunteer Spot please go to this link on Volunteer Spot http://vols.pt/gtWw78, or contact me directly at 250-809-7327
