Ready, set, donate.

The annual Salvation Army Kettle Drive officially kicked off in Fort St. John on Saturday. Cadets, local dignitaries and representatives from the Salvation Army gathered at the Totem Mall, to sing Christmas carols around the kettle. 

North Peace MLA Pat Pimm and Acting Mayor Don Irvin added the first bills of the season. But there’s a long way to go, because organizers want to raise $200,000. All the proceeds go towards the Salvation Army, which uses the money for it’s shelters and food bank.

Seven kettles are placed around the city,  in locations like the Totem Mall and the B.C. Liquor Store.
