Although today is the last day for the Red Kettles, donations are often collected until the end of the year. Money goes towards the local Salvation Army, and is the main fundraiser for the year.
The kettles are located in several businesses around the city, and donations can also be made at www.FillTheKettle.com or text HOPE1000 to 45678 to make a $5 donation.
So far British Columbia has raised $2.8 million, with a goal of $4 million. The national goal is $21 million.
