THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO ~~~~~ October 7, 2022 (LSNews) In an effort to keep everyone safe, we have decided to move our Thanksgiving dinner to a drive-thru again this year.

The world is experiencing a further increase in COVID cases, and we have had a few residents to date test positive. The decision to switch to a take-out meal was made on the recommendation of the Thunder Bay District Health Unit.

Dinner is Sunday, October 9, 2022, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.. served with the help of members of the Thunder Bay Professional Fire Fighters Association at the Salvation Army Journey to Life Center, 545 Cumberland Street.

Safety protocols will be observed as we make this free meal available to anyone in need or feeling lonely. We invite them to come and have a meal that they can enjoy at home.

For 25 years, it has been a tradition for the Thunder Bay Professional Firefighters Association and family members to provide the meal. This generous contribution to our Thunder Bay Professional Firefighters Association community is greatly appreciated by The Salvation Army and those who will be participating in this special Thanksgiving celebration.

Poverty and homelessness are persistent issues in Thunder Bay. “Many of us have a lot to be grateful for – and it’s great to share with others who don’t have the opportunity for a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner. This dinner is only possible because of to our partnership with the Thunder Bay Professional Firefighters Association and their families who take time out of their own festivities to help their neighbours,” said Gary Ferguson, Executive Director of Community and Residential Services for The Salvation Army.

Safety protocols will be in place, but we are grateful to be able to host a sit-down meal again. Dinner is offered free of charge to anyone in need or feeling alone. We invite them to come and have a meal that they can enjoy at home.
