LOCAL SALVATION ARMY OVER THE TOP

 The 2011 WETASKIWIN SALVATION ARMY REGIONAL CHRISTMAS KETTLE CAMPAIGN received a total donation of $83,072.12.  Of this, over $25,000 came in as coins rather than as paper bills or cheques.  The total compares to a goal of $58,000, and total donations last year (2010) of $63,463.90.  The whole total stays in the region to fund the Salvation Army Family and Social Services in the whole region which consists of LEDUC CITY and COUNTY, WETASKIWIN CITY and COUNTY, CAMROSE CITY and COUNTY, HOBBEMA, and the COUNTY of FLAGSTAFF.  The largest portion was donated in the City of Wetaskiwin, with the City of Camrose close behind.  Some support within the City of Leduc is also very much appreciated.  Walmart stores in both Wetaskiwin and Camrose matched the donations made in the kettle in the store on one Saturday.  The Wetaskiwin Walmart made an additional large donation, so there is a special, “Thank you,” to Walmart.
 The Salvation Army provides help where needed with respect and concern for the dignity of the recipients.  It is a most caring source of help, a most welcoming church.
