The Salvation Army and United Gospel Mission have partnered to raise $2 million in two weeks to help those most affected by COVID-19. Here are Lt Colonel Jamie Braund of The Salvation Army and Bill Mollard, Union Gospel Mission, to tell you more.
In the past few weeks, demand for services and essential resources in British Columbia has increased significantly due to the COVID-19 public health crisis. From families coping with lay-offs to people experiencing poverty and homelessness, British Columbians across the province need emergency support.
“Right now, we are responding on the front lines, providing food, shelter and safety,” says Lt Colonel Jamie Braund of The Salvation Army.
“But needs are surging,” says Bill Mollard, Union Gospel Mission. “More people are asking for help and we can’t let them down.”
Union Gospel Mission and The Salvation Army (British Columbia Division) have partnered, creating the COVID Relief Together initiative to assist individuals and families in need of emergency relief and basic necessities.
“In extraordinary times, you sometimes need extraordinary measures,” says Lt. Colonel Braund.
We’re all in this together, and we need your help to raise $2 million in two weeks to care for our neighbours impacted by COVID-19 during these difficult times. You’ll provide everything from meals and care packages to counselling and shelter services to people most affected by this crisis. Your gift will offer essential relief to fellow British Columbians during and after the pandemic.
We can’t do it without you. Please help us raise $2 million by April 21st for your neighbours in need.
