The Terrace Salvation Army’s 2015 Christmas Kettle campaign is officially underway as it collects money for its Christmas hampers and ongoing relief efforts throughout the year.

Last year the Army distributed 411 hampers in the area.

Kettles will be manned by volunteers at Canadian Tire, Save On Foods, Safeway, Walmart and at the provincial government’s liquor store.

“It is only because of the generosity of the people who make up the community of Terrace that we can help those in need,” said Salvation Army Captain Jim VanderHeyden in the Army’s annual Christmas appeal letter.

The Salvation Army also operates a food bank year round and offers emergency assistance.

A new program introduced this year is a twice-a-week breakfast program at the Army’s Kalum St. location.

The Christmas appeal letter, and an envelope in which to mail a donation, is being distributed in the Nov. 27, 2015 issue of The Northern Connector.
