3. Christmas Kettle Campaign 

The arrival of chillier temperatures is a sure sign that The Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Campaign is about to kick off.

The start of the holiday tradition is officially on November 13 but now is the time to sign-up to volunteer at the kettles.

There are over 2000 kettles across Manitoba, and that means a lot of volunteers are needed to make the campaign as successful as possible.
