Everyone is invited to attend with the Mayor of Richmond Hill David West and other members of city council, the official launch of the Richmond Hill Salvation Army’s annual Christmas Kettle Campaign.
Location: just outside the food court by the very large “JOY” sign at Hillcrest
The Salvation Army’s Annual Christmas Kettle Campaign obtains donations from the community to help those living in poverty and in need in our communities. The money raised in Richmond Hill and Vaughan stays in the community and enables the Salvation Army to continue their work locally, providing individuals and families the basic necessities of life to help them day to day.
Last year, the Richmond Hill Salvation Army helped more than 4100 adults and at-risk individuals with food, clothing, counseling and advocacy, distributed toys and food to over 400 families through the annual Christmas Assistance program and provided over 200 children with backpacks and school supplies. 1000 children’s and adult’s coats have already been collected and distributed this year.
The annual Christmas Kettle Campaign is the largest fundraising drive of the year for The Salvation Army and it would not be possible without the hundreds of kettle workers who volunteer their time. Individuals, families, businesses or community groups wishing to host a Christmas Kettle can register to volunteer by clicking HERE.
