MOLLY MAID’s Christmas in July Food Drive helped raise over 900 kilograms of food for Salvation Army food services across the country. For the past six years the relationship between The Salvation Army and MOLLY MAID has helped make a difference in the lives of Canadians trying to make ends meet.

One in eight Canadian households suffer from food insecurity. MOLLY MAID’s food drive provides not only food but a sense of hope and dignity to vulnerable children and families.

Thanks to the caring clients and employees of MOLLY MAID, The Salvation Army is realizing its goal of assisting Canadians affected by poverty and homelessness.
