The Kettle funds are necessary so that we are able to feed the hungry and provide support to struggling individuals and families throughout the coming year,” said Major Lori Mitchell, Executive Director for The Salvation Army Community & Residential Services in Thunder Bay.

The Salvation Army depends on the support of numerous corporate partners, including many individual retailers, who allow Christmas kettles to be placed at their stores each year.
