The Salvation Army Launched its 2019 Kettle campaign on November 13 to a packed house luncheon.
Mayor Don Iveson proclaimed the Kettle Launch and placed the first donation into the red kettles. 

The Salvation Army’s Christmas Kettle Campaign is an annual fundraising drive and 2019 marks the 129th year of the campaign. Kettles can be found at many locations across our Division and donations are needed to support our year-round programs and services to help people living in poverty.

Kettle donations stay local and go towards our social service programs, such as food bank services, school meal programs, counselling, hot meals, job search programs, summer camps, and more. Each city or region has programming designed to help their community’s most vulnerable.

Riverview Rotary will be ringing the kettles at Southgate Mall on December 13-15.  Volunteers are always needed to help run the campaigns and ring the bells. A Kettle can’t go out unless it has a volunteer attendant, so they are crucial to the campaign’s success. Bring your kids or grandkids with you and experience helping others together.
