Salvation Arm seeks stories of support

Vernon’s Salvation Army has helped thousands of families over the years and now it wants to hear from you.

Vernon’s Salvation Army has helped thousands of families over the years and now it wants to hear from you.

The non-profit agency is currently preparing a promotional campaign for the Christmas season and it is looking for residents to share their stories.

“We would love to hear stories of how the Salvation Army has helped you, our neighbours who have been in need,” said David MacBain, community ministries director.  “You may have needed our assistance just once or twice and are now able to help others, or perhaps you are still in need and you’d like to share that story.”

MacBain says the goal is to provide these stories with community donors as a way of saying thank you for their generosity.

“We hope they will be encouraged to continue helping the work of the Salvation Army here in Vernon,” he said.

“All stories will be appreciated and they will be considered anonymous.”
