Soup Kitchen

Food Bank and more...


November 2014

It's that time of year again! Christmas is just around the corner and we are gearing up for our kettle kick-off which is set for November 20, 2014. Through our Christmas Outreach and annual Kettle Campaign, the Salvation Army meets the needs of so many struggling people in our community. Last year we were able to provide Christmas hampers to over 700 families, and also to carry on our important work year round to help build healthy singles, families and sustainable community.
