  • Salvation Army In Springfield Behind On Campaign Goal

Throughout December, the Salvation Army has had its Christmas Kettle Campaign stations installed at various retail locations in Sherwood Park, including both WalMart locations, the Sherwood Park Mall and Costco.

"We are looking at the numbers every day", said Maj.

"We want to thank all the organizations that helped us this year".

Rosie shared how the Salvation Army has helped her family out and how thankful she is for them.

The money raised during the last quarter of the year usually amounts to about 60 percent of donations by the public throughout the year. The Salvation Army also uses Red Kettle funds to assist those trying to leave a life of addiction in their drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.


The Salvation Army's Burlington Christmas kettle fundraising campaign is going well as the final push is on to reach this year's $250,000 goal. For the second time in three days, a gold coin was donated. "I had her so I had to quit working and that is one reason why.it got a little tight having a new one, but actually it is a real blessing". "They are a blessing; I know it is for us".

"They don't ask for themselves, but to give to others", O'Mara said.

Volunteers will be collecting in the food court at Landsdowne Place until Saturday.

"This is the most giving town I've ever seen", O'Mara said as a young girl dropped some change into the donation kettle.
