Donations to the kettle campaign will be accepted until December 23 at various locations around the city.

With just two weeks to go in its annual Christmas Kettle Campaign, the Salvation Army in Whitehorse is falling behind on its $78,000 fundraising goal.

The red kettle Christmas campaign is responsible for roughly 1/3rd of the Salvation Army's yearly budget.

The Salvation Army is an global Christian organization that began its work in Canada in 1882.

"Over Christmas we will help over 300,000 people, serve over 10,000 meals and distribute more than half a million gift and toys to Aussies in need".


The Chick-fil-A cow will visit the Westgate Mall on Thursday to help the Salvation Army get all of its angels returned.

"There is an effort to continue the misinformation and this seems to be pushed most heavily during the red kettle season", the statement adds.

Several members of the team joined Major Rene Loveless at the Salvation Army warehouse space on Hamlyn Road this afternoon to present the donation.

Residents can also donate online through the Thunder Bay kettle website, or through the new Salvation Army Kettle App.

"When you give to the Salvation Army, you are investing in the future of marginalized and vulnerable people in your community", the Army said.
