KAWARTHA LAKES-The Salvation Army in Fenelon Falls, Bobcaygeon and Coboconk needs your help with the Kettle Campaign this year.

Officials say they are in desperate need of volunteers to man a Kettle for just a few hours at a time in all of these locations. Their funding for the entire year comes from the Christmas Mailers and the Christmas Kettle Campaign.

Money donated goes toward the operation of the food bank, clothing furniture and emergency assistance for residents, Christmas Hampers and toys along with Childrens’ Programs. Requests for Christmas Hampers are up by about 60% this year. Read more here:https://www.kawartha411.ca/2017/12/04/fenelon-falls-boy-makes-big-donation-to-the-salvation-army/

To volunteer please call 705-887-3031. It qualifies for community hours for students as well.
