CambridgeSide is hosting a special canned food donation drive through Sunday, November 19. All donations will be included in Thanksgiving baskets prepared by the Salvation Army for local families in need. With the help of local residents, the Massachusetts Salvation Army was able to donate 10,000 meals in 2021 according to a statement from the Community Corps of Massachusetts.
The Salvation Army is partnering again with CambridgeSide to host this annual food drive:
We are pleased to again partner with CambridgeSide on this important donation drive to help local families this holiday season.
Said Major Judy Heart, of the Cambridge Salvation Army Community Corps Center.
We are thankful to CambridgeSide for partnering with The Salvation Army again this year to ensure that everyone has a meal to put on their Thanksgiving table. With increasing requests for assistance, this is a time when our communities can come together to help our neighbors in need,” says Major Judy Hart, The Salvation Army of Cambridge.
