Go RVing Canada today (Dec. 9) launched its second annual “Stuff the RV and Feed Someone’s Tummy” national holiday campaign, which serves to benefit The Salvation Army.
According to a press release, Go RVing Canada is encouraging all Canadians to give to their local Salvation Army over the holidays and participate in the charitable events the organization will be hosting across the country over the next several weeks. Go RVing Canada is also promoting its very own iKettle, a user-friendly tool that allows participants to donate to The Salvation Army online.
“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,” said Go RVing Canada spokeswoman Angèle Lapointe. “The Salvation Army is an important organization and we are extremely happy to work with them over the holiday season. 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.”
Go RVing Canada is planning different charitable events across the country, and is asking Canadians to get involved in the campaign, as The Salvation Army is in need of help more than ever. According to the organization, approximately 3 million Canadians, or one in 11 people, live in poverty, making access to everyday needs like food, clothing and shelter difficult. With its 2011 holiday campaign, Go RVing Canada hopes to raise awareness in regards to this important fundraising event, which helps hundreds of people every holiday season.
“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,” said Graham Moore, spokesman for The Salvation Army. “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.”
