On January 26, 2012, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between The Salvation Army Canada and The Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities confirming their partnership agreement to strengthen disaster relief effectiveness, and aid Canadian communities to recover from disasters in a timely manner. The memorandum will ensure the donation of resources, and the sharing of contact lists that can be used in disaster response and recovery efforts mounted by The Salvation Army.
“Canadian Tire Jumpstart has been a generous partner with The Salvation Army over the years. Gifts in kind, funds to assist sports participation for children and youth, sponsorship, and attending our events are just a few activities that have solidified our relationship”, stated Graham Moore, the Territorial Public Relations and Development Secretary for The Salvation Army, Canada and Bermuda.
The next steps include the development of a communications protocol, ensuring that resources are allocated effectively. Thank you Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities – for assisting in building safe and strong communities!
