The Salvation Army needs volunteers for the final week of the Kettle Campaign. Every dollar raised through the campaign, which wraps up on Christmas Eve, stays local.
There is one kettle location in Prescott, at Giant Tiger. Shifts are two hours each.
Major Stephen McNeilly says some people in the community have stepped up to help. He says there was one man last week who covered three shifts, totalling about seven hours, because not enough people are calling to sign up.
The Salvation Army Brockville Community Church needs to raise $92,000 through the campaign this year.
McNeilly says it’s a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community and the money goes towards helping people in Prescott.
To volunteer, call the Salvation Army at 613-342-5211.
