    As The Salvation Army gears up for their annual Christmas Campaign, fighting against Poverty in Sudbury, the non-profit organization joined the community to celebrate the new Territorial Leaders of The Salvation Army–Sudbury’s own, Commissioners Floyd and Tracey Tidd.

    On Thursday Oct. 10, 2019, the community welcomed the Tidd’s as The Salvation Army’s new leaders with a celebration at Sudbury Community Church.

    “Sudbury is the place where our own Christian faith journeys began, says Floyd. “After leaving Sudbury thirty-five years ago to serve with The Salvation Army across Canada and Australia it is good to be ‘home’ and see all the great work being done in Sudbury to help the most vulnerable.”

    This year, The Salvation Army Cedar Place has provided 15,360 meals to local residents. The Salvation Army started a new program called Tiny Bites, designed to help fill the gap when school feeding programs shut down for the summer started this year and provided 450 lunches to children.

    “We are pleased to now lead a Christian movement that exists to bring hope today, meeting people where they are with expressions of the love of God in practical ways and invitation to explore Christian faith and community,” says Tracey.

    Last year, The Sally Ann’s Christmas Hamper program provided 1,133 households with food and 1,176 kids with toys.
