Large donation kicks off 2020 Weyburn Christmas Kettle campaign

Norm Mondor presented a donation of $10,000 to the Salvation Army’s director Ronza Reynard on Thursday to kick off their 2020 Christmas Kettle campaign with the first donation.

“We greatly appreciate Norm and Shirley’s donation of $10,000 to help our community in these trying times. All money raised during the holiday season is used year-round and stays in our community,” said kettle campaign coordinator Shannon Fodchuk.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions this year, the kettle campaign will look a little different with the Christmas Kettles out in stores.

“We will not be having volunteers man our kettles, as instead we will have counter kettles,” said Fodchuk.

The smaller kettles will be located at tills at Walmart, Wholesale Club, Canadian Tire, Pharmasave, Co-op food store, Peavey Mart and the Salvation Army Thrift Store.

The kettles will be in all locations starting on Thursday, Dec. 3 until Wednesday, Dec. 23.
