The need is greater than ever and the Salvation Army is asking the community and corporate partners to rally together to continue to support those in need this Christmas season by donating turkeys and other needed non-perishable food items, said Maj. Brain Slous, executive director of the Johnson Street Addictions and Rehabilitation Centre.

Turkeys collected for The Salvation Army are also distributed to families in need through the Stan Hagen Centre’s hamper program.

To donate a turkey or other food items, please contact Kirk Freemont at 250-384-3396 ext. 222.
