Early set up for red kettles in Glace Bay area

New to the Christmas Kettle campaign this year is a pilot project, which Sadowy is hoping to see rolled out in December, and will allow the option of digital payments at some locations.

The Salvation Army's Christmas Kettle Campaign will run from November 17 to December 23.

The goal for the 2017 Christmas Kettle campaign is $310,000.

Over the four years, Burger King Hawai'i guests have donated more than $37,000 in support of the program. The tradition was created in 1979 and helps relieve the stress of gift giving for millions of families every year. However the kettle funds are not just for Christmas but all year-long.

"I think people in this community like to help, and they know there's a certain number we need, they get it done", said Shrum.

While the comedian did not explicitly apologise, he said in his statement: "I have been remorseful of my actions". Corry said if she could do it all over again, she would have shut down production that day.

"I think we can all look back on our history and find those times where we find ourselves in a predicament, or in an area where we need some help, and it sure is wonderful that the Salvation Army is available for those individuals who need help at certain points in their lives".

"What the community gives us, we give back". So many of us have a lot. o many of us don't have very much.

As of November 23, kettles will be set up Foodland, Sobeys and Harbax Home Hardware in Glace Bay and beginning December 1, kettles will also be placed at Atlantic Superstore, the Glace Bay liquor store and the Sterling Mall.

If you want to help in other ways, you can volunteer as a bell ringer this holiday season. The bell ringing continues until December 23.
