Giant Tiger has made a donation of $30,000 worth of prepackaged snack food, water and portable tents to The Salvation Army Flood Relief efforts.
“We are so grateful for this generous donation to help in relief efforts,” said Major Ken Percy, Salvation Army officer. “Offering a snack and a beverage goes a long way to show that someone cares during these difficult time.”
The donation will help The Salvation Army provide nourishment to volunteers, residents and First Responders at the three locations where Salvation Army Canteen trucks are located including Cumberland, Constance Bay and Britannia.
“Giant Tiger is proud to give back to the community and when our communities need us we are very proud to step up to the challenge. It’s all about neighbours helping neighbours and we are very thankful to be partnering with The Salvation Army in this way,” said Alison Scarlyn, Public Relations Director for Giant Tiger.
The Salvation Army has provided over 12,000 meals to First Responders, volunteers and those affected by the flood. Water levels are now expected to peak Thursday or Friday.
