The Salvation Army has deployed volunteers and workers to provide hot meals and emotional and spiritual care to anyone in need at the temporary shelter and comfort center located at the Canada Games Center in Halifax.

“For us it’s all about the people,” says John Bignell, The Salvation Army’s EDS coordinator for Nova Scotia. “We want every person who comes to us to walk away with a full belly and the knowledge that we are here for them doing the best we can.”

The Salvation Army prides itself on being a community driven organization. Our volunteers and workers live in the same communities they give hope to, so when we deploy in an emergency situation it is not strangers we are assisting. It is friends, neighbors and family. That is why you can count on The Salvation Army having our boots on the ground Giving Hope to evacuees and first responders for as long as the need exists.
