Across the country, various organizations and individuals are hosting events and giving food and toys to help The Salvation Army's work with people in need at Christmas.

“Go RVing Canada hopes that Canadians will get in the spirit of giving and lend a hand to those who are most in need by joining us and taking part in The Salvation Army's Annual Christmas Campaign,” says Angèle Lapointe, spokesperson for Go RVing Canada.
Go RVing Canada is planning different charitable events across the country as well as promoting its own iKettle, a user-friendly tool that allows participants to donate to The Salvation Army online.
“The Salvation Army is an important organization and we are extremely happy to work with them over the holiday season,” says Lapointe. “We are hoping to fill an RV full of non-perishable food with the help of cities across Canada. This allows us to give back and help Canadian families who are less fortunate.”
Approximately three million Canadians, or one in 11 people, live in poverty, making access to everyday needs like food, clothing and shelter difficult.
“The Salvation Army is thrilled to partner again with Go RVing Canada to raise funds in support of our work with Canadians most affected by poverty,” says Graham Moore, The Salvation Army, territorial public relations and development secretary. “The support of partners like Go RVing Canada and other Canadians make it possible for our organization to meet our goal of giving hope and dignity to people in need in 400 communities across Canada.”
