(Winnipeg MB April 17, 2009)

The City of Winnipeg has now opened a reception centre for all flood evacuees. Through the Operation We Care Campaign, The Salvation Army is Giving Hope Today by meeting and greeting everyone who comes to the Century Arena Reception Centre and by providing emotional and Spiritual care and physical nourishment to all evacuees and volunteers.

We are now asking everyone to assist us with our response efforts in helping us help others by giving generously to the Operation We Care Campaign.  Please call 1-800-SAL-ARMY to donate or click on the DONATE NOW link at the top of this page and mention that your donation is intended for the “Red River Flood Relief”.
