For a good cause

Kelowna Cap rings the bells

Your donations will impact thousands of local citizens in need

  • Dec. 2, 2016 7:00 p.m.

The Kelowna Capital News staff is spreading some cheer this season by ringing the Salvation Army bells for the next three Fridays.

We invite you to head on down to the Walmart on Banks Road to donate to a great cause and meet the Cap staff. We will be there Dec. 2, Dec. 9 and Dec. 15 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Your donations will impact thousands of local citizens in need.

The Kettle Campaign 2016 goal $750,000.

Last year, the Salvation Army supported the highest number of families to date with more than 1,800 people receiving food and toys in the Central Okanagan.

This past year alone it has reportedly assisted well over 6,000 individuals and 2,500 families with practical assistance.

If you want to volunteer and make a difference head over to their Facebook page or click here.

To donate head down to any of the Kettles around town, found at Walmart, London Drugs and liquor stores.

You can also donate online or drop into the Salvation Army Office at 1480 Sutherland Avenue.

We will see you at Walmart!
