The Sal­va­tion Army has found a great way for people to get to­gether and have an in­ex­pen­sive lunch.

On Wed­nes­day, June 28, Sally’s So­cial Cafe was launched. Go­ing for­ward, Knox United Church each Wed­nes­day from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., will be the place to come for lunch and en­joy other people’s com­pany.

“We want to build strong com­mu­nity con­nec­tions,” said Cap­tain Jen­nifer Hil­lier of the Sal­va­tion Army. “It is open to any­one in the com­mu­nity.”

While it pro­vides a nu­tri­tious lunch each week for just $3, Hil­lier says the goal is more to bring people to­gether.

They have as­sem­bled a strong team of vol­un­teers to make it work, and have also en­joyed some great do­na­tions to get it up and run­ning. They could al­ways use more vol­un­teers.

“There will be some board games avail­able for people who just want to stay and have some fel­low­ship time, some fun, laugh­ter,” she said. Vol­un­teers Dianne Sny­der, and Dwight Con­sta­ble join Jen­nessa McAu­ley Com­mu­nity and Fam­ily Ser­vices worker with The Sal­va­tion Army, Cap­tain Jen­nifer Hil­lier and Shane Hil­lier of The Sal­va­tion Army in open­ing Sally’s So­cial Cafe, aimed to bring people to­gether for lunch and fel­low­ship each Wed­nes­day at Knox United Church.
