Hope in the County
On Friday, November 17, business people and citizens wanting tomake a difference in Huron County are invited to participate in The Salvation Army Suncoast Citadel’s second annual Hope in the City Breakfast.
The nationwide breakfast started 16 years ago, in British Columbia, as a venue for business people and community leaders to network and discuss possible collaborations with the Salvation Army.
This year’s eventwill return to the Knights of Columbus Hall in Goderich. Doors for the event will open at 7am with a hot breakfast buffet provided byWest StreetWilly’s available by 7:15am.
After hearing a few highlights about Salvation Army initiatives in Huron County, participants will have the pleasure of hearing fromthis year’s keynote speaker, The Honourable Ben Lobb, MP for Huron-Bruce.
Lieutenant Laura Hickman says that last year about 80 people attended the breakfast and this year they are hoping to increase that number to about 100 guests.
Tickets are only $ 20 and ticket sales have started to trickle in but there is still plenty of room for you.
The Salvation Army has a strong desire to ensure that there are services available that practically meet the needs of the most vulnerable within our communities.
Often the best solutions are those that bring many partners together working towards the common goal of helping others.
Friday, November 17 also marks the launch of The Salvation Army’s Christmas Kettle Campaign. This is the organization’s largest fundraising initiative and brings crucial funds that enable it to meet human needs 365 days a year.
This campaign annually draws in over 300 volunteers and there is always room for one more.
