Christmas Kettle Campaign Update - Week 1
With the campaign underway, we’re now moving well towards our $310,000 Campaign Goal! We’ll be updating you regularly to keep you well informed. We have started to make great progress thus far.
As some of you may know, we will soon be introducing Digital Devices to our campaign that function like debit and credit machines. The devices will have an assigned digital team and will only be featured in select locations—it will offer donors more convenience and alternate ways to give.
A friendly reminder to all, it has been brought to our attention that there are items being handed out while on kettle duty. We would like to kindly remind you that we are not permitted to hand anything out unless it’s preapproved by the Salvation Army locally. If you happen to notice this occurring, please contact us at the Kettle Hotline or via email. Additionally please note this is not an opportunity to share your personal views or beliefs with the public, we have to abide by store policies and be respectful at all times. Thank you for your understanding.
Shifts Left to Fill: We still have many holes left to fill for this week's schedule. If you are able to volunteer some extra hours for the campaign this week, we gratefully encourage you to do so. And if you happen to know of some individuals who would be interested in volunteering for the campaign then please redirect them to us!
