Salvation Army’s Kettle Campaign needs volunteers in Port Hardy

The Salvation Army’s Christmas Kettle Campaign is starting up on Nov. 29 and will be running on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at Save On Foods in Port Hardy until Dec. 22, but they need volunteers to help make it happen.

“It’s our only fundraiser that we do to raise funds to support the Mount Waddington operation which helps people with emergency services like food, shelter, and clothing,” said Salvation Army representative Michael Winter, adding he is asking for people who would be “willing and wanting to be volunteers for the kettles — just give us a call at the centre … we are looking for eager people who are community oriented and want to be of assistance, and we can’t do it without volunteers and support from the community.”

Winter noted he loves giving back to the less fortunate and that working for the Salvation Army is “a calling — I feel like God has called me to do this work. Actually, I was homeless and I was living on the streets and that’s how I was introduced to the Salvation Army, and I feel that not once has it ever felt like work. I’m honoured and blessed to be in a position to give of myself, but in actuality, they give to me — it’s reciprocal.”

If you would like to volunteer to help with the Salvation Army’s Christmas Kettle Campaign, please contact Darlene, the kettle coordinator, at 949-8125 ext. 221.
