THE SALVATION ARMY
The Salvation Army provides hope and dignity to those experiencing hard times. Today, approximately three million Canadians, or one in 11 people, live in poverty. The Salvation Army recognizes that poverty is a critical issue, and that everyone has the right to access basic necessities such as nutritious food, health care, education and economic opportunity.
HOW TO GIVE
There are multiple ways to support The Salvation Army through the Hope in the City Leadership Breakfast: by sponsoring the event and marketing your company, by making a donation and receiving a charitable tax receipt, by purchasing a table and bringing guests to hear our story.
