Sally Ann appreciates Extreme Weather Shelter support

In response to the recent media reports about the extreme weather shelter receiving an additional $6,780 in funding

In response to the recent media reports about the extreme weather shelter receiving an additional $6,780 in funding from the Campbell River Homelessness Coalition, The Salvation Army would like to clarify the following:

The funds received from the coalition will be used to open the shelter from 7 p.m. – 7 a.m., not 6 p.m .as was previously reported. The remaining funds will be used to open the shelter on nights where weather conditions are questionable and only a degree or so off from official activation.

The additional funding will also ensure we are able to open the Extreme Weather Shelter on holidays such as Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day regardless of the weather conditions.

At the end of the season any remaining funds from Homeless Coalition grant, they will be reimbursed to the coalition.

The Salvation Army would also like to thank the Homeless Coalition for this funding.

Kevin Mack,

Community Ministries Director,
