Port Alberni’s Salvation Army kettle campaign needs help

Dec. 15 is matching day at Walmart kettle

The Salvation Army in Port Alberni will be out in full force at Walmart on Saturday, Dec. 15—and it’s all for a good cause.

Saturday is matching day at Walmart: for every dollar the Salvation Army collects in its Christmas kettles, Walmart will match the donation, says Capt. Michael Ramsay.

“(Saturday,) Walmart with match dollar for dollar everything donated in the Salvation Army kettle at their store, which means that for every dollar a person donates it is like donating $2 and for every $20 they donate it is like donating $40,”Ramsay said.

“With every dollar one donates, we will be able to help twice as many people in our community.”

The Salvation Army is looking for more volunteers for its kettle campaign, which wraps up right before Christmas. This year’s campaign goal is $100,000.

For more information, please call the Salvation Army at 250-723-6913.
