Salvation Army looking to raise $65,000 during Kettle Campaign


FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Salvation Army is looking to raise $65,000 this year during the Kettle Campaign.

As of December 5th, they have raised a total of $19,885.87.

While they are raising money for those in need in the community, The Salvation Army also is needing a little help themselves.

They are struggling to find enough volunteers to staff the kettles. They have seen a dramatic drop in volunteer numbers from previous years according to Sheldon Feener with the Salvation Army.

The shifts are 2 hours in length. They run from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., and 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. The Salvation Army needs coverage for all shifts.

For more information on the kettle drive, you can contact (250) 261-1933.
