Hundreds of meals served to Port Alberni’s most vulnerable on Thanksgiving
Salvation Army staff and volunteers cooked, prepped, served and delivered full meal
Volunteers and staff with Port Alberni’s Salvation Army spent part of their Thanksgiving weekend cooking, assembling and sharing hundreds of meals with people.
“Between the lunch at the Bread of Life and meals delivered in the evening off the food truck we served about 250 meals,” said Colin Minions from the Salvation Army.
Those organizing the Thanksgiving meal at the Bread of Life were hoping to raise $2,500 through a Facebook fundraiser, but they didn’t meet the goal, Minions added. The meal went ahead anyway.
