The Salvation Army in Maple Ridge serves 9

Sally Anne serves Easter

Dinner starts at 5 p.m., open to all in the community.

The Salvation Army Caring Place will be hosting its annual Good Friday dinner on April 3 to celebrate the Easter holiday.

The Salvation Army feeds about 9,000 meals a month to individuals from Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.

As with its Christmas meal in December, the Easter dinner has a big draw for individuals and families looking for an inclusive community environment over the holiday.

The dinner this year will take place on Friday, April 3, beginning at 5 p.m. and will feature the traditional turkey, vegetables and potatoes.

Easter dinner at the Salvation Army is open to everyone in the community who is looking for a warm meal and a friendly environment. The same holds true for anyone looking to volunteer their time or resources.

The kitchen is looking for monetary donations to help with the costs associated with the food for the dinner.

As well, they are looking for volunteers who can help with serving the meal and cleaning afterwards.

• Anyone interested in assisting with the Easter meal on Good Friday, please contact 604-463-8296 ext. 106 or email amelia.norrie@caringplace.ca. You can also donate online at www.caringplace.ca.
