The Salvation Army needs an army of volunteers to smile and ring the bells at a kettle for two hour shifts from November 21st through December 24th at business locations throughout Kelowna and West Kelowna. The annual Christmas Kettle Campaign is the major fund drive that supports the Salvation Army not only at Christmas but makes year round community outreach programs possible. All monies collected stay locally to support individuals and families in the Central Okanagan.
Allison White, Kettle Scheduler communicates this year’s greatest challenge for volunteers “If you call West Kelowna your home, we really need people to consider joining our team of bell ringers at the established West Kelowna kettle locations. And if you enjoy the fresh air, outdoor kettle volunteers are especially needed throughout the region. This is a perfect volunteer opportunity for a busy person, as 2 hour shifts are scheduled based on your availability.”
Suzie Docherty, Volunteer Coordinator adds, “A heart for people and a ready smile to greet passersby, no other experience is required, so won’t you please join the hundreds of community spirited individuals who ring bells at the kettles year after year.”
