Katliņš 2017

Christmas Kettle season is over. Thank you all for your support and contribution to make it a special event. In December, 2017 Christmas kettle in collaboration with “RIMI” the Christmas Kettle was seen in Riga, Bauska, Daugavpils, Jelgava, Liepāja and Valmiera. In addition the Kettle was placed at “Maxima” in Saldus and at “Top” Bauska. Moreover, in collaboration with the Swedish Embassy people could donate in the Christmas Kettle in Riga Dome Cathedral during “Santa Lucia” concert.
The purpose of the campaign was to prepare a Christmas dinner for people in need and to encourage people to open their hearts and donate in order to help those who are struggling. By doing it, the Salvation Army wants to show God’s providence and love for all.
Thank you to all who donated and supported. This year Christmas Kettle raised EUR 5192.83. 105 volunteers took part in the campaign. The donated money was used for preparing Christmas dinner in 10 soup kitchens all over Latvia. 989 people attended Christmas events where they could not only enjoy a nice hot meal but also hear the Gospel.
We want to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who open their hearts and donated. It helped people in need to come closer to God and see His love, care and presence in people’s lives.
