Christmas Kettle Campaign 2020
On this Christmas 2020, our hearts are filled with gratitude for the amazing support that we have received this year, and in particular over the past few weeks.We have been blessed to provide support for over 550 local households this month (a 30% increase over last year).
Despite many Christmas events being cancelled, and others changed due to COVID, the community support was stronger than ever!
When we set our 2020 Christmas Campaign goal in January of this year, we had no idea the impact that COVID would have on our operations. Entering into the season, there were many challenges, but once again, the community stepped forward to assist and meet those needs.
We are thrilled to report that we have exceeded our Christmas Campaign goal of $500,000! A final total will be released early in January.
We are humbled by the trust that you have placed in us; honoured to be able to serve the wonderful community of Vernon, and look forward to partnering with this amazing community to #GiveHope in 2021.
From the entire team of staff and volunteers at The Salvation Army, we want to wish you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
