Crew from HMCS Protecteur worked together in order to make a generous donation to The Salvation Army in Victoria, BC. Melanie Vokey, Sub-Lieutenant, of the HMCS Protecteur dropped off boxes filled with personal care and hygiene items including razors, mouthwash, tampax, soap, combs, facecloths and toothbrushes. In addition to the $1,500 worth of goods, the HMCS Protecteur also donated $1,000 which will be split between the Addictions and Rehabilitation Centre and the Stan Hagen Centre for Families. The money will be used for additional hygiene products and homelessness initiatives in the capital city.
The items donated will be of great help to the clients we serve, sometimes these simple care items are the ones most needed. Thank you very much for helping us restore dignity in the community!!
