The Salvation Army North Bay reached 85% of its overall kettle campaign goal.
Over $191,000 was raised through direct kettle donations, TipTap, mail-in and online donations.
The goal of the campaign, which ran from mid-November through Dec. 24, was $225,000.
“Although we were slightly off our goal, this year’s fundraising and volunteering efforts were a success in many ways,” says Major Stephanie Watkinson, Corps Officer, North Bay Ministries. “The continued support of our Army of Givers during these challenging times is a true testament to their compassion for our most vulnerable and trust in us, The Salvation Army, to deliver life-changing programs in the community to those in need.”
During the campaign, kettles were set up at various retail locations across the city.
“We are so fortunate to have the community support here in North Bay who either donated their time to volunteer on our kettles or who donated financially to help us provide hope to our community’s most vulnerable,” says Watkinson.
Monetary donations can be made year-round online at www.salvationarmy.ca/northbay or dropped off at their location at 134 McIntyre Street East.
