The Salvation Army Christmas Kettle campaign is starting up.
The kettles will be at several locations including Quality Foods, Save-On, Canadian Tire and Thrifty Foods in Parksville (but not Parksville city hall), and Qualicum Foods in Qualicum Beach.
All donations go to local support programs. The goal this year is to raise $100,000. For other ways to give, go to parksvillesalvationarmy.ca.
