It's that time of year again! The Salvation Army is launching its annual Christmas Kettle Campaign. Christmas Kettle Attendants bring in our largest contributions of the year. The money raised during the Christmas season supports our many family and community services, from children's camps to emergency disaster services. This position is a great opportunity for anyone who enjoys engaging with the public and would like to donate their time to help others in their community. There are kettles at many sites across the city, from Kanata to Orleans, so you can choose a location that is convenient for you. We need volunteers for the following dates (excluding Sundays): November 26 to December 24. We hope to hear from you!
