On Saturday, December 7th volunteers from the Toronto West chapter prepared and served a breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausages cooked in tomato ketchup with onions, hash browns, and croissants at 2 Salvation Army Shelters in Mississauga.
At the Dundas Street location, they served over 150 meals to men, women, and children currently in residence there.
At the Cawthra Street location, they served about 90 meals to men and women, some of whom are in residence and others who just walked off the street or a meal.
