We are proud to announce the grand opening of The Salvation Army’s terrace located in Sherbrooke in front of the Thrift Store on 100 Wellington South. This summer, during the Thrift Store’s operating hours, we will be pleased to welcome everyone with a delicious coffee for only 25 cents!

The idea of this terrace is to allow the community to get together, and to offer vulnerable people a place to go and to socialize. “This was the logical continuation for us, to serve the population, to break the isolation and homelessness in Sherbrooke” explains Captain Claude Dagenais, Shebrooke’s Corps Officer.

The contribution of the Knights of Columbus and the work of our volunteers allows The Salvation Army to serve meals on Saturdays, effective as of June 20th, 2015. Major Brian Venables, Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army Quebec division, welcomes this initiative: "We are very pleased to see the support of the population of Sherbrooke. Together we can fight against poverty and homelessness " he says.

Pierre who is in charge of the terrace, welcomes people with his beautiful smile. "It makes a place for people to come, talk and have coffee," he says.

On the opening, at Saint-Jean-Baptiste day, Captain Anne-Marie Dagenais provided her creative touch to the food while volunteers made everyone welcome and part of the celebration. Captain Claude Dagenais accompanied by musiciens entertained those passing by and others familiar with the street, looking for some nourishment and something to celebrate.

We can’t wait to see you there!
