The Salvation Army is hosting a hot dog barbecue and offering tours of their facility today until 3 p.m. in an effort to share their services available at their location in downtown Nelson.

Social service worker students, Alita Tondu and Monica Fernandes are currently finishing their practicum at the Salvation Army.

“As part of our practicum we organized this event to promote community awareness on the struggles of poor and marginalized peoples of Nelson,” said Fernandes.

Tables out front the store, located at 601 Vernon Street, with information boards demonstrated the variety of services supplied by the Salvation Army, as well as a bake sale and ballon creations by Bubbles the Clown.

Everyone is welcome.
