Londoners have also given generously when it comes to the components that make up the Salvation Army hampers. The dollar bills and loose change that shoppers drop in the red kettles help fund their various programs, including shelter and supplies for victims of house fires.

The incident occurred December 5 around 1 p.m.at the Acme on Mantua Avenue in Woodbury.

With The Salvation Army's Christmas Kettle Campaign in Thunder Bay $88,000 short of its $200,000 goal, the organization is grateful for its continuing partnership with Walmart Canada.

The girls were all invited to represent the Blackburn branch of The Salvation Army Band in the performance which was shown live on CBBC.

"We're down about 12 percent this year on our kettle income", Broome said.

The Red Kettle Campaign is one of the longest-running and most recognizable fundraising efforts in the world.

The Red Kettle campaign is now down 13 percent compared to the income raised last Christmas season, according to the Salvation Army.

Providing meals and presents for children at Christmas is just the beginning for The Salvation Army. "My roommate worked for the Salvation Army and they asked if he knew someone who could ring a bell, and he said I've got a roommate, but he's going to have to bring the goat".

"What we are seeing is that people from all walks of life and backgrounds are seeking our help".

"We are solid for food", Wise said. This year there has been an increase in the number of families who signed up for Christmas assistance, Mr. Horrell said. While The Salvation Army provides feeding and sheltering to address the foundational need, we provide much more than that.

Although the program usually runs from a Monday to a Friday, this year there is a break because of the way the holidays fall on the calendar.
