Salvation Army Gives Hope in the City

The Salvation Army’s brilliant red kettle soon gave evidence of our community leader’s generosity as guests came together to support the “2nd Annual Hope in the City Luncheon” in partnership with the Rotary Club of Windsor (1918).

The event was hosted by Master of Ceremonies, Jim Crichton, (Senior News Anchor at CTV Windsor) on November 14, 2016 at the Giovanni Caboto Club (2175 Parent Avenue).

This luncheon event provides an opportunity for attendees to network with like-minded community and business leaders, to learn about the support opportunities available and how they can collaborate with The Salvation Army in bringing vital services to people in need in the Windsor area.

The familiar “ringing of the Salvation Army’s bells” and singing of traditional Christmas carols reminded guests of the need to continue to support the Salvations Army’s proud tradition of “we do for others” to help families in need, especially at Christmas.

Keynote motivational speaker and author, Peter Legge of Chairman & CEO of Canada Wide Media Limited shared his principles on how make your mark in life. “It’s simply through the power of tenacity, the courage of leadership and the strength of character. What you do on the runway of life is up to you. Learn to serve”.

Rooted in its founding in 1865, the Salvation Army  in Windsor brings “hope” to those in need through donations to the Red Kettle campaign. The target of year’s Red Kettle goal is $270,000 and starting November 17, volunteers will stand to their red kettles at various area locations to receive donations.
