The Salvation Army wrapped up their biggest fundraiser of the year. The Kettle Campaign, which runs during the holiday season, is a big benefit to the community.

Glenna Cryderman with the Kindersley Salvation Army said they met their goal of around $22,000.

"All money raised here stays here." Cryderman explained, "It goes to help pay for the hams and turkeys at Christmas, and it stays in the family service budget which helps people in Kindersley and the area. It might help with a place to stay, food or gas. There's lots of areas where it helps."

She noted that while the actual Kettle Campaign donations were slightly down this year, they made up the loss with a lot of people making generous Christmas donations.

It also takes a generous community to run this program. Cryderman said they had dozens of volunteers from around town to help keep the Kettle Campaign running, "The kettles are supported by local churches and service groups, and there are some individuals who help as well."

Kettles are usually set up around town in stores and at the mall. The Salvation Army was also a donation collection site.

Cryderman added, "I just want to thank the community for their support and let everyone know that the dollars raised here, stay here."
