How to help
Inspired to reach out? This season offers plenty of opportunities. Salvation Army Kettle Campaign
The Salvation Army is looking for a few good people, organizations, groups, companies, and churches to help with the annual Christmas Kettle campaign. The money raised through The Salvation Army Christmas Kettles is used to help the local Powell River people who are in need, not only at Christmas, but throughout the entire year. The Army will operate five kettles again this year. Kettles are “open” for donations from approximately 10 am to 8 pm Monday to Saturday, Nov. 21 to Dec. 24, excluding Sundays. As an individual, you can choose to take a kettle shift for one or two hours on your own, or with a friend. As an organization or company, you can provide people who will cover all the shifts at one particular kettle location for one particular day, or have your choice of shifts on your choice of days. Each kettle is accompanied by a board announcing the name of your business or organization staffing the kettle to let Powell River know you are there and you care! To reserve your preferred dates, times, and locations, please contact the Salvation Army at 604 485-6067 or stop by 4500 Joyce Avenue.

We are interested in getting young people involved with this project, and are now partnering with the Powell River Kings Junior A Hockey team to get their young men involved with us. We would like to use this venue as a means to teaching young people about the value in service. It is a very rewarding environment in which to serve. Every Friday from noon-1 pm at St. Joseph’s Hall beside Assumption Catholic Church. Anyone wanting to volunteer can contact me at email@example.com or 604-483-6895. ~ Christine Behan

Cocktails, cuisine, and conversation We love the buzz of lively atmosphere, the hum of a busy kitchen, and the clinking of glasses from people having a good time.
Several groups in town are working separately and together to sponsor Syrian and other refugee families. At meetings in October, the following groups expressed a commitment to bringing a family: Assumption Catholic Church (through Hands Across The Water), St. David’s & St. Paul’s Anglican Church, and the Powell River Employment Program (PREP). Other groups are considering it. Other groups are raising funds. They include: the Powell River Pentecostal Church; Four Square Gospel Church, and others. The cost for sponsoring a family

But sometimes that noise in our restaurant affected your conversations. So Coastal Cookery asked Chris and his team at Personal Touch for help, and they came up with a sound-dampening solution that gives Coastal Cookery a chic new look.
Amazing deals on everything in store. Snacks, prizes and more.
“The new carpet tiles Chris recommended reduces the noise, makes it safer for our employees, is easy to clean, and makes the place more comfortable.” ~ Sarah & Mike Salome owners of Coastal Cookery
