Hundreds Support Hope In The City Breakfast

Saint Johners are happy to support the work of the Salvation Army and today's Hope in the City breakfast was no exception.

Major Danny Pinksen tells CHSJ News all proceeds from the event support their Community Response Unit to provide help at fire scenes or other disasters to first responders and to victims.

He says it's also used with community programs and initiatives and if they are requested they will be the Unit out and provide support.

Frank McKenna gave a speech and he tells CHSJ News he loves the spirit of Saint John. He says it always rises up and this morning is an example when you get 600 or 700 people supporting a cause like this. McKenna noted the remarkable effort by the Salvation Army for over 100 years in this city.
