FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Salvation Army’s annual Christmas Kettle Campaign has officially kicked off for another year.
While the Kettle Campaign is still taking place this year, Salvation Army Executive Director, Cameron Eggie, says this year will be a bit different due to the COVID-19 pandemic with less kettles being manned by volunteers.
Despite fewer volunteers being seen alongside the Kettles, Eggie says the Salvation Army is continuing to encourage the community to donate and he expects community members to be just as generous in years past as the need is still very strong, especially during the pandemic with a goal of raising $75,000. So far, as of Monday, $7,000 has been raised since the campaign started on Thursday.
Aside from the Kettle Campaign, Eggie says they are also accepting donations for their Christmas Hamper Program and Toy Drive, with donations being accepted at locations around the City.
