Goal
The Salvation Army's Christmas Kettle Campaign is one of Canada's largest and most recognizable annual charitable events. In addition to the critical fundraising impact of the Campaign, the Christmas kettles boost the Army's visibility and awareness. In fact, there are more than 2,000 kettle locations across Canada that support a wide range of Salvation Army programs.

This Campaign is only possible through volunteering by our 'Christmas Kettle Bell Ringers', who are our donation ambassadors at numerous business outlets, community centres, and public venues in Mississauga. In addition to cheerfully, thankfully receiving donations, our volunteers are in the community at this time, available to provide information about our services and refer those who may be in need.

Donations help fund Food Bank and Family Services programs in Mississauga.
