It’s almost like an unofficial kickoff to the holiday season for The Salvation Army.

The Christmas Kettle Campaign is on until December 23rd in an effort to raise funds for the upcoming year.

“This campaign is our major fundraiser for all of the work The Salvation Army does,” explains Business Manager Bill Glasgow.

“Anything that comes in the kettles during the fundraiser is basically how we operate for next year.”

Glasgow says the community support is remarkable.

“This town is very generous, every year we seem to do very well no matter what the obstacles are in our way and it’s only because the people of Prince George are so generous and so helpful.”

The kettles are out Monday thru Saturday at the following locations around the city:

    • All four Save On Foods,
    • The Real Canadian Superstore,
    • Center Court – Pine Centre Mall,
    • Coles – Pine Centre Mall,
    • Walmart,
    • Canadian Tire,
    • Shoppers Drug Mart – Spruceland,
