The Salvation Army in Fort St. John has an operating budget of $180,000. Its drop-in centre currently serves an average of 90 meals per day, six days a week. The Family Services program it runs hands out an average 120 hampers a month with a jump to 400 hampers throughout December for Christmas.

The kickoff will include the singing of Christmas carols and everyone is welcome to attend.
