The Salvation Army needs volunteers for its annual kettle campaign.

The kettle campaign is one of Canada’s largest and most recognizable charitable events with all donated dollars staying in the community where the donation was made.

In Victoria, the kettle funds are directed to the Stan Hagen Centre for Families.

On average, the Stan Hagen Centre assists 1,000 individuals and families every month. During the winter season this demand increases.

In 2012, the centre assisted 1,500 families with Christmas hampers and 1,000 children with Christmas gifts.

Kettle shifts run between two to eight hours,

If you are able to volunteer, please contact Sipili Molia, kettle coordinator at 250-386-8521, 250-216-2447 or by email at Sipili@sashcf.com.

The kettle campaign runs from Nov. 14 to Dec. 24.
