It's that time of year again, when the bubbles pop up in the mall and stores around Thunder Bay - The Salvation Army's annual Christmas Kettle Campaign kicks off on Thursday, November 17!
Join us at 11:00 a.m . at Intercity Mall by the Santa display as we celebrate the start of another campaign. We will be joined by Mayor Keith Hobbs, along with representatives from our local Canadian Tire Stores on behalf of the "From our Kettle to Your Kettle" fundraising campaign partnership with Pop's Kettle Corn, as well as representatives from the Lakehead University Thunderwolves.
Friday is 'Celebrity Day' with local politicians and key people in the city manning the kettles - people like many of your City Councillors; Fire Chief , Police Chief and many others.
On Saturday, Westgate High School, Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School, Superior High School, Queen Hockey Team, and Thunder Bay Horticultural Society will cover the kettles to round out our kick off weekend!
The kettle locations are:
Walmart - County Fair
Walmart - Memorial Avenue
Walmart - Arthur Street (Fridays and Saturdays only - starting on November 25)
We also have three LCBO locations that will start on December 1 - County Fair, Thunder Centre and Arthur Street.
We are in need of volunteers - if you can spare an hour or two, please call 345-6492 and work out a time that suits you best.
Please help us through your time or through contributing to the kettles - we can't do this without you!
