Our Back to School program will support you with a backpack, water bottle and assistance towards a new pair of running shoes for each child.

It’s that time of year again where the leaves start falling as does the temperature. Not all of us are lucky enough to have a warm coat for when it gets really cold. But you can help!

.

Coats For Folks Collection has started! Please take a moment to see if you have any winter coats you’re not using anymore and drop them off at Thompson’ Cleaners and Tailors, 954 Columbia St W #195.

The Salvation Army is hosting three amazing BRAVE events to celebrate the strength of being a girl. These uplifting celebrations happen simultaneously on Saturday February 29, 2020 from 3 -7 p.m. in three cities: Kamloops, Vancouver, and Victoria.

 

What is BRAVE? BRAVE is a 1-day catalytic event to remind girls they are valuable and worth being celebrated while encouraging them to dream big for what their futures can be.

 

Who is BRAVE for? BRAVE is for girls ages 12-18 in vulnerable/ at risk/ situations like: foster care, homelessness and youth probation.

 

What will happen at BRAVE? The BRAVE events will include things like: great music, encouraging speakers, confidence building activities, optional arts and crafts, resource booths, optional personal pampering, dancing, drumming, dinner, snacks, meeting others and more. Girls can expect to leave feeling brave and empowered with a BRAVE t-shirt, BRAVE tote, BRAVE journal, and gift bag.
