Salvation Army – Christmas Hampers and more Ways to Give
The Salvation Army Miramichi Community Resource Centre, would like to thank everyone for their sponsorship in the past to help local families in need. In Christmas 2019, 208 families were helped-including 135 children/teens and 277 adults in Miramichi and the surrounding area.
