Well it’s time! Christmas Kettle time! Our official launch is this Friday November 17th at 2pm at Hillcrest Mall. Mayor Dave Barrow, Councillor Karen Cilevitz and others will be on hand to participate in the first official donations of the season.

And, all the money raised in Richmond Hill and Vaughan, stays in Richmond Hill and Vaughan. Thank YOU for Giving Hope Today!images3

Welcome to the 2017 Richmond Hill/Vaughan Kettle Campaign Web Site!

Welcome to the 2017 Richmond Hill Christmas Kettle Campaign web site – your source for Kettle Campaign and volunteer information. The Kettle Campaign is the largest annual fundraising event for the Salvation Army each and every year and we are looking forward to reaching our goal of $150,000. But, we need people – lots of people!  On your own as a Kettle Bell Ringer, with your son or daughter, with your work mates, a group of students or even with guitar in hand, please click on the Contact tab above and let us know you would like to play a very important role in making a real difference in the lives of others.

There are people living in poverty within the Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Maple, Oak Ridges area and every donation makes a difference in their lives. We are grateful for the generosity of businesses and fellow community members who contribute to our campaign. We appreciate your continued support, it is because of you we are able to help hundreds of people in our community by restoring dignity and giving hope throughout the year and to help in collecting the funds that stay in our community to help those living in poverty, needing clothing, housing assistance most of all.
