The Trail Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Campaign officially kicked off in Trail on Friday. From now until Dec. 23 Christmas kettles will be at Ferraro Foods, Canadian Tire, Waneta Mall and Trail Walmart. Beginning Dec. 1 bell ringers will be outside the East Trail liquor store. Provincially, the goal is to raise $4 million in an effort to feed, clothe and shelter individuals and families in need. Locally, the goal is to raise $30,000 to help with the hundreds of Christmas hampers distributed through Trail Salvation Army Family Services and throughout the year at Kate’s Kitchen.
