The Salvation Army has opened up its drop-in centre again, now that renovations are completed due to the flood it experienced at the beginning of December.
“We have opened and have new programs available for people to experience,” Captain Isobel Lippers said.
Those programs include a wide range of activities.
On Mondays there are crochet classes from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m.
On Tuesdays from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. there is an H20 Study Group, while from 1:15 to 4 p.m. there are crib tournaments.
Every Wednesday there’s a free coffee and God talk from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. and in the afternoons from 1:15 to 4 p.m. there is a pool tournament.
Free basic clipper hair cuts are offered Thursdays from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. and people are asked to ensure their hair is clean.
Also on Thursdays from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. a ‘Never Alone’ class is offered to help people learn to deal with different addictions or other problems they may have.
On Thursday afternoons from 1:15 to 2:30 p.m. the drop-in shows a free movie with popcorn.
Every day the pool tables are open, and games such as puzzles, darts, chess, crib and ping pong are available.
The gym will be open soon with classes running from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m.
The drop-in is open Monday-Friday 9 to 11:45 a.m. and 1 to 4 p.m.
The food bank is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. while breakfast is served from 9 to 10 a.m. and lunch from noon to 1 p.m. Monday to Friday.
