The group issued a launch this week saying the company’s native household companies, meals financial institution, soup kitchen, youth outreach centre and Christmas Hamper Program will now not be out there.
The closure means two staff will lose their jobs. The company’s properties on downtown Pembroke Avenue shall be put up on the market.
The Salvation Military is happy with the function it has performed in Pembroke since 1886 and thanks the group for supporting the mission of giving hope to these in want, mentioned Glenn van Gulik, divisional secretary of public relations.
“We’re grateful for the work of the Salvation Military in our group,” mentioned Pembroke Mayor Michael LeMay.
“We stay up for the continuing help throughout this transition with different group companions.”
