Support Fort St John News

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – One of Canada’s largest and most recognizable campaigns kicks off this month and is looking for volunteers.

The Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Campaign runs from November 18th to December 24th, and volunteers are needed.

According to the Executive Director of the Salvation Army, Jared Braun, around 750 volunteer shifts need to be filled.

Community members interested in volunteering can email the Salvation Army at and include some information like what days they’re available, how many hours, and if they’d like to be assigned to a specific store.

Kettles will be set up at all the grocery stores in the area and Canadian Tire and Walmart. The tap option will also be back where residents can tap to donate $5,$10, and $20.

The goal for this year’s Kettle Campaign is $100,000.

Last year, the Kettle Campaign surpassed the goal of $75,000 and ended with over $130,000 collected.

More information about the Kettle Campaign can be found on the SA website.
