Christmas Kettle Campaign Update - Week 3
It's hard to believe that we're already into our third week of the campaign, and even harder to believe that December is here! We hope everyone's getting into the Christmas Spirit and excited for the many festivities, this season!
Together, we've raised 30 percent of our $310,000 goal for the community but we still have much to go. The remaining weeks are crucial to the success of the campaign. We kindly urge each of you to take on as many shifts as you can, and as always we thank you for your continued support.
Holiday hours have begun and the Cataraqui Mall will now be open until 9 pm on the weekends. Instead of making the closing shift a one hour block, we will be scheduling the final shift for a three hour block. If you find you have some extra time this December to volunteer for a closing shift, then the Cataraqui Mall could be a great place to book!
We're working ever-more closely with the City of Kingston everyday to grow the reach of the Kettle Campaign. So far we've been given the opportunity to host a kettle at the Kingston Holiday Market which was a great success. We've also been given the chance to join the Snow Much Fun event with a Kettle which takes place on this Friday December 8th at Springer Market Square. If you're looking to support the community and your Salvation Army, this could be a great event to attend!
LCBO - Princess:
For those of you who have committed to the campaign in the past, the kettle at this location is no longer outside. We are encouraging people to book this store as much as possible. It's a great chance to volunteer with your friends or family and it's in a prime location with ease of access to public transit.
As always, there are shifts that still need to be booked. Many of you are receiving our daily newsletter detailing the shifts that need to be filled. You can call the Kettle Hotline at 613-531-5918 to book your shifts, or you may book them yourself by visiting our website and logging in.
