Salvation Army officials said earlier this week they need another $25,000 to meet their 2016 goal of $160,000 in Chilliwack.
“Our community has been so supportive this year,” said Salvation Army Officer, Major Orest Goyak, “We’re so close to our goal. Any contribution will help.”
The kettle campaign started on Nov. 18 and will continue until Saturday, Dec. 24.
Donations are accepted at all 14 locations throughout the community, and can also be made on-line at www.fillthekettle.com.
The Christmas Kettle funds stay in Chilliwack, and go to offset the needs of The Salvation Army Food Bank, Family Services, Soup Kitchen, clothing and household vouchers, Emergency Disaster Services, Homeless Outreach program and housing assistance, Emergency Shelter and Extreme Weather Shelter, Fireside Addiction & Counseling Services, and Children’s Camps.
