The Salvation Army hopes to raise $175,000 from the kettles this year, part of a $391,000 total Christmas fundraising goal to cover the nonprofit's programs throughout next year. "It wasn't a good situation, as a lot of people go through, and this Christmas Eve the Salvation Army came to our door". "There are many in our community who are not aware of the scope of what we do at the Community Life Centre, and so we would like to take this opportunity to share about our operations".

"What the community gives us, we give back". Funds collected during the campaign will provide for families and individuals across the state during the holiday season and year-round, sustaining the vital programs and services from The Salvation Army that help people in need manage their daily lives. "The only difference between you and a police officer is that they are getting paid to do those things".

As of November 23, kettles will be set up Foodland, Sobeys and Harbax Home Hardware in Glace Bay and beginning December 1, kettles will also be placed at Atlantic Superstore, the Glace Bay liquor store and the Sterling Mall. The bell ringing continues until December 23.
