VANCOUVER, Oct. 12 /CNW/ - Thanksgiving Dinner at The Salvation Army's
Harbourlight on the downtown eastside is a well established tradition,
especially for Home Depot. For more than ten years Home Depot has been
sponsoring The Salvation Army's annual Thanksgiving Dinner and this year - the
tradition continues. Home Depot will once again help provide dinners to
homeless people in a spirit of gratitude and thanksgiving.
The dinner will be held next Sunday, October 14th from 4:30pm to 6:30pm
at The Salvation Army's Harbour Light Addictions and Rehabilitation Centre,
119 East Cordova St. Home Depot will provide the groceries as well as 28
volunteer workers to help The Salvation Army bring meals to more than 1,500
homeless people. 125 turkeys will be used along with more than 360 pounds of
potatoes and of course all the trimmings!
"We are grateful to Home Depot for their loyal and generous support of
this annual event", says Major Stan Folkins, "The Salvation Army's ability to
help the marginalized depends enormously on the generosity and goodwill of the
community, and Home Depot demonstrates this wonderfully - it's corporate
social responsibility in action."
