North London Rotary and Rona London have teamed up to add a little colour to baby’s room!
These two community partners have worked together to beautify the living environment for several pregnant and parenting teens and their babies at The Salvation Army Bethesda Centre here in London. With fiscal restraints hitting most social service agencies, the luxury of updating the group home just wasn’t on the books.
Thanks to the generous time, finances and donation of paint (60 gallons to be exact!) Bethesda is being transformed room by room. And as we all know – when mama’s happy, everybody’s happy!
The Salvation Army is essential to our communities as the largest social service provider in Canada, outside of the government. The Salvation Army leads the way in transitional and emergency housing by providing fully 1/3 of all shelter beds in our nation. As an international movement and relief agency, The Salvation Army now serves in 120 countries throughout the world.
