A total 25 volunteers spent their Saturday afternoon to volunteer with Salvation Army – Community Meals Program at the Harbour Light facility in Downtown Vancouver. This two day event took place on November 18 and 25. 

The Salvation Army is a non-profit organization aims to share hope and provide support to vulnerable people in communities across Canada. The Community Meals Program provides free, nutritious meals for up to 200 community guests at each service, many of whom are struggling with poverty, homelessness, or are the working poor.

Our volunteers helped to greet guests, plate and serve for over 200 meals, clean-up tables and more importantly helped to create a warm and safe environment for the community guests to meet new friends and build connections with others as they share time and meal together.

We had a lot of fun connecting with fellow CPA members/candidates, while serving the community. A huge thank you to all our Chapter volunteers. Looking forward to connecting with more volunteers at the next event!
