COVID-19 Update

As we navigate these uncertain days, we want to assure you that The Salvation Army is here and ready to serve. 


Due to the school and church closures we have suspended our breakfast program at St. James’ School and our Language Café at Thunder Bay Community Church. Our food bank is still operating by appointment only and our soup van is out every night as usual, serving people in their own neighbourhoods. Our emergency shelter is operating as usual and our long-term residents are being cared for in the same capacity as always.

The Salvation Army has always had the reputation of being on the front lines; showing up before anyone else arrives and staying after everyone else has left – that is our commitment during these days – that we will be here, caring for people in need.


God’s word tells us in 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”  We are trusting Him to walk with us through this and to guide our thoughts and actions as we continue to serve others.


Thank you for your partnership with us.
