OTTAWA, Dec. 20, 2013 /CNW/ - With only 4 days left of the Christmas
Kettle Campaign, The Salvation Army is sitting at only 1 million
dollars of the 1.5 million dollar goal for Eastern Ontario.
The Christmas Kettle Campaign will help support individuals and families
through 2014 with nutritious meals, emergency food, warm clothing and
rent and utility assistance. Reaching our goal will allow us to meet
the needs of communities across Eastern Ontario. If we don't meet the
goal services will have to be cut at a time when need is growing
"There are only a few days remaining to help, but I am hopeful that our
very generous communities will help meet the need," said Sean Maddox,
Area Director for Public Relations, "The funds raised through the
campaign helps local individuals and families, that have nowhere else
to turn, all year long."
Donations can be made directly at Christmas Kettles, online at FilltheKettle.com at SalvationArmy.ca, by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY or at your local Salvation Army centre.
