The community continues to show support for The Salvation Army’s Kettle Campaign leading up to Christmas. Saturday, December 16, was Walmart Canada’s annual Fill the Kettle Day, where the company will match donations put into the the Kettles at their store up to $100,000. A few community groups seized the opportunity to maximize their donation. The Rotary Club of Drumheller donated $2,500 to the Kettle. The Kinsmen Club of Drumheller also showed its support and donated $1,000. The Catholic Women’s League (CWL) hosted its annual Bring and Buy and was able to donate $6,000 to the Kettles. At the donations are (l-r) Major Robert Burrell of The Salvation Army, Linda Fisher of the Rotary Club, Amanda Courtenay of The Salvation Army, Kinsmen President Keith Hodgson, organizer of the CWL Bring and Buy Debbie Grande, CWL President Sharon Doyle, Rotary president Bev Krabsen, Gary Krabsen of the Rotary Club and Major Laura Burrell of The Salvation Army. Major Robert Burrell tells the Mail this is another example of the “generosity of this community”. The match day raised $11,812. 70.
