Salvation Army looking for contingent of kettle volunteers

Caroling while on a kettle is optional, but it is a lot of fun and a great team-building experience

The Salvation Army is looking for volunteers for their annual Christmas Kettle Campaign. Volunteers work two hour shifts overseeing a kettle and can perform or simply greet and thank people.

The Salvation Army is looking for volunteers for their annual Christmas Kettle Campaign which is their major annual fund raiser that supports the work of the Salvation Army in Campbell River; including the Lighthouse Soup Kitchen, and Emergency Family Services.  These services provide food, shelter, clothing and household items to hundreds of individuals and families throughout the year.

They are looking to fill 36 two hour shifts everyday at various locations in Campbell River.

All locations can accommodate two people, some can accommodate larger groups, such as choirs.

Caroling while on a kettle is optional, but it is a lot of fun and a great team-building experience.

Everyone is invited to attend the Kettle Volunteer Orientation on Saturday Nov. 19 at 1 p.m. at Ocean Crest Church, 291 McLean Street.

The kettles will start on Thursday Nov. 24 and go until Dec 24. They are out Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. They also have some locations from 6 p.m.to 8 p.m. if that is preferred.

The Salvation Army encourage families, businesses or organizations and other small groups to fill the same time and place each week.

Others choose to fill one or two days at a location such as Walmart or Superstore (one day is four two-hour shifts).

Participants are encouraged to bring a sign with a company logo or wear uniforms or badges to identify themselves while on a kettle.

To sign up or for more information contact Tami Ness, volunteer coordinator at the Salvation Army at  250-204-3756 or via email to cr.sakettles@gmail.com.
