Walmart matches Sally Ann donations

In collaboration with the Salvation Army’s annual Christmas Kettle Campaign, Walmart locations in Kelowna and West Kelowna matched any and all donations received on Saturday.

The two Walmart locations brought in $16,908 in cash and cheque donations, but its still too early to tell what that means for Kelowna.

Last week Walmart announced it would match donations up to $50,000 across the country to the Salvation Army.

Geri Grainger, with Kelowna’s Salvation Army, says the group has made “significant” progress towards their goal this year and have now raised $540,000.

People can still donate at a kettle through Tuesday evening, or can donate online at anytime.

They can also mail or drop off a cheque at one of the four Sally Ann locations and receive a tax receipt. Please note that Salvation Army thrift stores and Church offices will be closed from Dec. 25-27.
