The Salvation Army’s kettles were overflowing with community support by the time their annual campaign came to a close.

The charity surged well past its $160,000 goal, collecting $174,706 when the final numbers were tallied. That’s a $15,000 increase over 2011 and means the organization can continue its work in Thunder Bay in 2013.

“We at The Salvation Army extend a big thank you to everyone in Thunder Bay and area who helped to make this year’s kettle campaign a success.  Your generosity with both your time and finances is overwhelming.  Thank you for helping us to restore hope and dignity in our community,” said Major Mervyn Halvorsen, Executive Director of The Salvation Army Community and Residential Services, in a release issued on Christmas Eve.
