Lt. Brent Haas, of the Happy Valley-Goose Bay Salvation Army, encourages anyone in need of warm winter clothing to head to the Salvation Army church on Churchill Street tomorrow (Thursday, Jan. 9) and Friday, Jan 10, from 12 noon – 4 p.m.
It’s hard to imagine that there might be people in the Upper Lake Melville area without proper winter clothing this year, but in case there are, the Salvation Army is prepared to help.
Through generous donations of clothing from the Iron Ore Company of Canada in Labrador West, and Co-operators Insurance in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, the Salvation Army Church on Churchill Street has been taken over by parkas, scarves, mitts, hats, and snowpants — all of which are free of charge to anyone who may find themselves in need.
“The clothes can be picked out by individuals who need them,” said. Lt. Haas. “They can pick out whatever they want.”
The Church will be open for this service from 12 noon – 4 p.m. tomorrow (Thursday), Jan. 9 and Friday, Jan 10 at the same hours.
“Winter clothing is available for men, women and children,” noted Lt. Haas. “It’s all gently used or in some cases, brand new with tags still attached.”
