Attention The Salvation Army – Vernon Guests:
Due to the recent pandemic regarding Covid-19, we are taking the following necessary precautions to keep all staff, volunteers, and guests safe and healthy:
- Food Hampers – we are by appointment only (no walk-in during the afternoons). If you need a food hamper, please call our main line at 250-549-4111.
- Waiting Times – please come only 5 minutes prior to your appointment. Our staff will ask a few simple questions regarding your current health and exposure to Covid-19 and will provide you with hand sanitizer and a mask.
- Coffee – we are not able to serve coffee at this time.
- Sickness – if you are experiencing any cold or flu symptoms, please stay home to prevent further spread of germs. If you need food, please call our main line to make arrangements.
- Programs – Please reach out to Jillian Penney or Jen Thompson to see which of our programs are currently running and how to get plugged in!
We remain committed to serving Vernon to the best of our ability and are hopeful that full services will return as soon as possible.
