This past weekend saw The Salvation Army in Victoria celebrate Easter with the community on multiple occasions.

Wednesday April 4th marked a wonderful feast as ARC’s community kitchen prepared a wonderful turkey meal with all the trimmings to celebrate Easter.  Special meals such as this one are served up about four times a year and generally around holidays. Serving approximately 300 people, guests enjoyed a meal prepared by volunteers and staff – all food served in the community kitchen is donated by the community and by local businesses or individuals.

On Thursday April 5th, The Stan Hagen Centre for Families hosted a Children’s Easter Party.  With over 20 children in attendance for a fun day, they enjoyed an afternoon filled with Easter festivities such as crafts, colouring and jewellery making. HOP the popular movie played in the background and even Sally Ann joined the fun! All attending children left with a basket filled with educational toys and treats donated by Discovery Toys.

Thank you to our volunteers and donors, these special meals and afternoon events wouldn’t be possible without your help and support!

Happy Easter!
