The Salvation Army’s annual Truck of Hope campaign officially commenced this morning in front of the Bermuda Industrial Union’s headquarters on Union Street.
According to Core Officer and Community and Family Services Officer Kandacy Barnes, from the Army’s north street citadel, the truck of hope is all about making sure those who are less fortunate and their families have a great Christmas season.
They are receiving many different kinds of donations from the community.
“ Within this past year and since this pandemic started, we’ve seen the need [in Bermuda] soar tremendously,” Captain Barnes said. “ We know that our community is in great need right now, but we also know that Bermuda is a giving and supportive community and that they’ve always been 100 percent faithful to the Salvation Army.”
Captain Barnes feels confident that, with the help of Bermudians, the Salvation Army can conquer the needs of the community this Christmas season.
She believes that everything that the Salvation Army does in Bermuda and around the world stems from their love of the Lord and His people.
“ We at the Salvation Army know that need knows no face,” she said. “ Tomorrow, anyone can be in a position of need. Because we love God and His people, we will give and serve them wholeheartedly and abundantly.”
If people did not have a chance to drop off their donations at B.I.U. this morning, they can drop it off at the North Street citadel ( directly across from Dellwood Middle school.)
On behalf of the Salvation Army, Captain Barnes would like to say a special thank you to the entire island community, InterIsland Communications, Lindo’s Family Foods and the Annex Toys, to name just a few.
“ We at the Salvation Army are able to do because of the support of caring people [and organizations] like them, so we would just like to thank them for their continued support and partnership,” she said.————————————————————————Any content which is considered unsuitable, unlawful, or offensive, includes personal details, advertises or promotes products, services or websites, or repeats previous comments will be removed.
