Salvation Army Grand Opening
Prince George, B.C. – A community barbecue was held to celebrate the grand opening of the Salvation Army’s new building in Prince George Friday.
The new home, located at 3500 18th Avenue, was made possible by a generous donation by Curt Garland, CEO and Chairman of Lomak Industries Corporation.
“A very substantial donation,” said Captain Neil Wilkinson. “We would not have been able to do this without his contribution.”
He said they started moving in last August and notes renovations to the 17,000 square foot facility are now 98% complete.
Wilkinson added there’s still a “staggering” need for the services the Salvation Army provide.
“We serve 1,500 families which translates to almost 4,000 people a month.”
