Salvation army christmas kettle volunteers

In order to meet this goal, volunteers are needed now through Christmas Eve.

“We rely heavily on our kettle workers who volunteer their time,” says Shannon Wise, The Salvation Army’s divisional director of marketing & communications. “Monetary donations are extremely important but donating your time is just as significant. One in seven people in Windsor struggle to make ends meet and this campaign helps The Salvation Army feed, clothe, shelter and empower those in need.”

Contributions allow The Salvation Army to continue operating its life-changing programs, such as housing supports, community meals, food bank, job and skills training, and budgeting and education classes. The Salvation Army gives people the tools needed to rebuild dignity and renew hope–whether that means providing shelter, emergency disaster relief, spiritual guidance or life-skills development.

Last year, over 12,000 individuals received assistance from The Salvation Army Windsor Centre of Hope food bank and 1,800 local children received toys at Christmas.

Those interested in volunteering can sign up online at www.windsorchristmaskettles.ca or by calling (519) 971-5878

Snow Angels Volunteer Snow Removal Program city of windsor

Snow on sidewalks is a potential hazard to those with limited mobility. It also makes it difficult, if not impossible, for those who deliver services to the community to do their job – people who deliver mail, read water/gas meters, delivery services, EMS and fire.

That’s why the City of Windsor offers the Snow Angels Program, a voluntary snow removal service for senior citizens and persons with physical disabilities. The program attempts to match volunteers from the community with residents in their neighbourhoods requiring assistance.

For volunteers, it’s a great way to get some exercise and help your community! For high school students, it’s an opportunity to help someone in need and round out your Community Volunteer Hours. For residents, it’s a great way to access timely snow removal assistance.

If you want to volunteer or are looking for some assistance with snow removal at your home, don’t wait. Call or email today to find out more about the Snow Angels Program.

Volunteer Prize Draw
As an added incentive, all registered volunteers will be entered into a draw to win a tablet. In addition, two $50 Rec Express Cards will be awarded as well.
