Hope in the City Windsor

Windsor, ON – More than 250 community and business leaders, along with stakeholders and friends of The Salvation Army, joined together with the Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) for the first Hope in the City Luncheon on Monday, November 23, 2015.  Held at the Caboto Club, the Hope in the City Luncheon, provided an opportunity for attendees to network with like-minded leaders, to learn about the support opportunities available and how they can collaborate with The Salvation Army in bringing vital services to people in need in Windsor and area.


Rotary President Michael Drake welcomed those in attendance and commented on the ongoing relationship the club has with The Salvation Army.  Emceed by Jim Crichton, Senior News Anchor at CTV Windsor and Advisory Board Member, Hope in the City also marked the official launch of the 2015 Christmas Kettle Campaign.

In addition, the Hope in the City Luncheon provided an opportunity to recognize four members of the Windsor Advisory Board who were presented with Lifetime Member certificates by Divisional Commander, Major Morris Vincent. Margaret Ann Prince, Madelon Kidd, Milton Grant and William Howitt have served with the Windsor board for many years and were thanked for their service and ongoing commitment to The Salvation Army.  The Divisional Commander also inducted three new members of the Windsor board, Colleen Mitchell, Matt Dunlop and Bill Marra.  Each brings unique experiences and talents which will serve the Army well for years to come.

In her inspiring keynote address, “Giving Back Makes Good Business Sense”, Jody Steinhauer shared how her own success of growing the Bargains Group from her apartment to a multi-million-dollar-a-year business, would not have been possible had she not made a conscious effort to give back to the community.  She encouraged those in attendance to find ways to give back and to make it a part of the culture of the workplace.

IMG_2876The Salvation Army would like to sincerely thank the citizens of Windsor who contributed to our Christmas Campaign in 2014. With your help we were able to provide dignity and hope to thousands in our City in the past year. Whether it was a gift of time or treasure – we couldn’t have done it without you. In the final days of the Christmas Kettle Campaign, The Salvation Army surpassed its $240,000 goal.

“We are so grateful to the people of Windsor for their generosity and support of The Salvation Army, not just at Christmas, but all throughout the year”, says Perron Goodyear, Public Relations & Development Representative for The Salvation Army. “We are once again overwhelmed and humbled by the confidence shown in us during these extremely difficult economic times”.

Money raised during the Christmas Kettle Campaign helped support the most vulnerable in our City at Christmas and will continue to provide support through The Salvation Army’s Community & Family Services throughout the year.

Jim Crichton, 2014 Christmas Kettle Champion says, “Once again this year, residents of Windsor-Essex have responded with great generosity to the Christmas Kettle Campaign and I would like to thank you sincerely for your support of The Salvation Army. Your generosity brings comfort to the less fortunate, not just at Christmas, but all year. God bless you, and hoping you have a peaceful New Year.”
