KINGSTON – Kingston Transit joined forces with the Salvation Army today to lend a helping hand to those in need during the holiday season. The goal was to stuff this bus, parked outside of No Frills on Division Street, in 5 hours. More than 100 donations of non-perishable food and personal hygiene items were packed into the vehicle. Last year the Salvation Army served over 12 thousand families. Local reps say around this time of the year, the need is even greater and these items will go a long way.
Keirsten McFie/Salvation Army:
“It will really help the people that come into the Salvation Army needing food. It will help the Salvation Army fill the pantry with the items that we need. But mostly it will help the people that come in looking for food to put on their shelves.”
