The Salvation Army Christmas Hamper Registration is complete in Drumheller and things look promising.

According to Captain Jennifer Hillier from the Salvation Army, less people than last year registered for the Christmas hampers.  

"We have about 100 families registered for Christmas help.  We do expect we will have some additional families come in over the next couple of weeks," remarked Hillier.  

This number is down from 133 hampers last year.  It may increase closer to Christmas but the hope is that it remains lower.

"Our tag line is giving hope today and so we want to give hope at Christmas time," added Hillier. "If there are families in the community who are needing a little bit of extra help
with food or toys for kids for this Christmas, then by all means, they can reach out to us."

The Salvation Army is encouraged by the calls they have been receiving from businesses and people in the community inquiring what they need for Christmas.

The Kettle Campaign begins this Friday, November 24.
