FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – With the current COVID-19 pandemic and new mandates and guidelines regarding the pandemic and gatherings, The Salvation Army Kettle Campaign will be adding a Tap payment option.
According to Cameron Eggie, Executive Director of the Fort St. John Salvation Army, the Kettle Campaign is one of the longest-running fundraisers for The Salvation Army. Last year alone, they were able to raise over $100,000 in the six-week fundraiser.
This year, the Salvation Army has set a goal of $75,000, and they have already raised $13,000 of that goal in just over a week since the fundraiser began. This time last year, they had raised around $9,000.
The holiday season kicks off a few fundraisers for The Salvation Army, along with the Kettle Campaign; the FSJ Huskies will be doing their annual ‘Fill the Bus’ campaign on Sunday, November 29th.
