For several years, members of our Okotoks Real Estate Team have volunteered for the Salvation Army's Annual Kettle Campaign.

 

We all recognize the signature red kettles and the jingling of Christmas bells by volunteers posted at locations throughout the region. Your donations to these kettles all stay local to support the Foothills community by helping with emergencies, sending kids to camp, and more. It is the one public fundraiser that the Salvation Army does each year. 

 

Our friends at the Salvation Army Foothills approached us saying that this year there is a HUGE need for volunteers in Okotoks & High River to help with this year's kettle campaign, which has already begun. 

 

If you are interested in volunteering please call Lynn Spencer, the Kettle Coordinator, at 403-975-7280. 

 

Merry Christmas!
