The Salvation Army’s kettle campaign will start this week.
Spokesperson Rick Apperson says all money raised stays in the community.
“The money that is raised stays locally,” he says. “It goes to buying food, items to run our drop in centre and food bank and also the programming that we do.”
He is hoping that at least $30,000 will come in over the holiday season.
Apperson adds they are still looking for a few more volunteers.
Kettles will be set up outside the grocery stores in Smithers and Houston every Thursday- Saturday until December 20th.
