Langley kettles need minders

The Gateway of Hope is hoping the spirit of competition will get some sports organizations helping out with the annual Christmas kettles.

Gateway is issuing a challenge to sports groups, as well as service clubs, social groups, church groups and anyone who can spare a few hours to help.

“The Gateway of Hope is very much in need of volunteers to help us push our Kettle Campaign over the top this year,” said Jim Coggles, executive director of the Gateway of Hope. “Our services to the community depend on it.”

There are various locations available. 

“We have three weeks to go, and we have a number of locations available for evenings and entire Saturdays,” he explained.

The need is for people at the kettles some evenings, 6-9 p.m., and Saturdays, between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m.

Anyone who can help is asked to contact Bianca at 604-514-7375 or kettles@gatewayofhope.ca. The Kettle Campaign runs until Dec. 24.

The Gateway of Hope just marked its fifth anniversary and offers a growing array of programs including the emergency shelter, the extreme weather shelter, residential programs, kitchen training, jobs training, counselling, family supports, community meals, school supplies, clothing, and more.
