Salvation Army Kettle volunteers needed

The Red Deer Salvation Army is in need of volunteers for the annual kettle campaign.

The Red Deer Salvation Army is in need of volunteers for the annual kettle campaign.

About 200 people are needed to man the kettles at various locations throughout the city through the Christmas season.

The kettle campaign starts on Nov. 22 and runs through to Dec. 22.

Volunteers will be positioned with their kettles, jingling their bells and asking for donations.

“We’re hoping people will call and volunteer,” said Major Larry Bridger of Red Deer Salvation Army. “We have lots of blank spaces right now.”

Funds raised from the kettle campaign are important to the Salvation Army’s programs and their assistance of the less fortunate at Christmas and throughout the year.

For more information on the kettle campaign and to register, call Jane at the Salvation Army in Red Deer at 403-346-2251.
