The wellness committee from The Salvation Army's Territorial Headquarters (THQ) for Canada and Bermuda hosted its fifth annual Dignity Luncheon in May. As part of the territory's ongoing Dignity Project, the luncheon raises funds to support social service programs in Toronto. This year, the event supported the transitional program at the Army's Harbour Light facility.

Members of the North York Temple Band provided music for the event, while guest speakers included Rochelle McAlister, program co-ordinator for the transitional program, and Don Fleming, a former client of the program who shared his testimony.
Ticket sales and donations from the luncheon raised more than $700 for the transitional program. “This shows that our THQ staff are not only taking this as a duty, but they care and support the mission of The Salvation Army,” says Estee Lau, executive secretary, department of business administration, and member of the wellness committee, “which is to share the love of Christ, meet human needs and be transforming influences in the communities of our world.”
