KAMLOOPS — The Salvation Army kettle campaign is in it’s final push for the 2015 season.

Captain Paul Trickett is happy with the campaign's progress, thanks to the generosity of many residents both in Kamloops and surrounding areas.

The Salvation Army is hoping the community can dig just a little bit deeper.

"We've set a loft goal this year, and we are about $80,000 behind that goal," said Trickett adding the additional money "means we can run extra programming, it means people won't be turned away for food at any time of the year, and the help will be there."

Christine Kirby, who is the kettle campaign co-ordinator says volunteers are still needed at many kettle locations.

"It's a really great opportunity, it makes you feel really good inside," said Kirby who also noted "you are really helping out a good cause."

Walmart will be matching donations to the kettle campaign, dollar for dollar up to $100,000 on December 19th at locations across British Columbia.
