Letter: ‘I have not lost faith in Salvation Army’

Please find places for the street people and leave the Salvation Army where it is for the convenience of those who need it.

Editor, The News:

Re: ‘Unacceptable behaviour’ by city (Letters, Sept. 2).

In answer to “City shelter will go downtown,” I am glad that there is finally one place where the street people can be placed – the vacant Sleep Shop.

I wouldn’t want the Salvation Army to be moved, although Mayor Nicole Read said there are many who have lost faith in it.

But there are so many who have not and I am one of them.

If you read Bradley Christianson’s letter on Aug. 28, you will get a good view of what the Caring Place is doing for the community.

So please find places for the street people and leave the Salvation Army where it is for the convenience of those who need it.
