The Salvation Army Christmas Kettles have now entered their final week for 2017, and are still behind last years’ numbers.
Roy Bladen, the ministry director for The Salvation Army in Thompson said that if the Kettles don’t pick up, 2018 will be a hard year for the food bank.
There are four kettle locations; Safeway, Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart and the Liqour Mart.
The Kettles will be out all of this week, until Saturday, from 11:00am unil 7:00pm.
All of the donations made stay here in Thompson, and go to fund the work of the food bank.
Donations can also be made online at FillTheKettle.com.
