The Salvation Army is pleased to again partner with MOLLY MAID and its customers in an effort to collect non-perishable food items to help restock depleted shelves this summer.

“We are extremely grateful to MOLLY MAID for their interest in the work of The Salvation Army,” says Graham Moore, Territorial Secretary for Public Relations and Development for The Salvation Army Canada and Bermuda. “Their efforts in collecting food items will go a long way towards supporting those who have met with hard times.”

Last year, more than 1.6 million people were helped by The Salvation Army in Canada and Bermuda.
