Salvation Army kicks off annual Red Kettle campaign

Over the next month, you may notice red jugs popping up all over Sarnia-Lambton.

The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle event kicks off on November 17 and runs until Christmas Eve.

Lieutenant Brad Webster said last year’s initiative was a success, generating more than $170,000 in revenue.

They hope to make at least $160,000 this time.

He said all the money stayed in the community.

“I just want to say ‘thank you’ to our community,” Webster said. “We’ve had a lot of support throughout the year. I know customers who have come to share their stories with us and thank them for their support. We ask, if you can, to throw anything when you see a jug Get in. That goes a long way in support.”

They also need volunteers to stand by the jugs, Webster said.

In Sarnia, they will be in Superstore, Walmart, Metro, Lambton Mall and Canadian Tire.

Those interested in helping can contact the Salvation Army office at 519-344-1142.
