THUNDER BAY – The Thunder Bay Professional Fire Fighters Association and The Salvation Army excited to return to a sit-down Thanksgiving Dinner for the lonely and needy in Thunder Bay now that the pandemic is easing.

On Sunday, October 9, 2022, from 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m. the Thunder Bay Professional Fire Fighters Association will serve a turkey dinner at The Salvation Army Journey to Life Centre, 545 Cumberland St. N.  Bus service will be available from both City Hall and Water St. Terminals courtesy of Iron Range Bus Lines.

For 25 years, it has become a tradition for the Thunder Bay Professional Fire Fighters Association along with family members to provide the meal and then to serve at the dinner to make this a special day for those attending.  This generous contribution to our community from the Thunder Bay Professional Fire Fighters Association is much appreciated by The Salvation Army and those who will partake in this special Thanksgiving celebration.

Poverty and homelessness are ongoing problems in Thunder Bay.  “So many of us have a lot to be thankful for – and it’s great to share with others who don’t have the opportunity for a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner.  This dinner is only possible because of our partnership with the Thunder Bay Professional Fire Fighters Association and their families who take time out of their own festivities to help their neighbours,” said Gary Ferguson, Executive Director of The Salvation Army Community & Residential Services.

There will be safety protocols in place, but we are thankful that we can once again host a sit-down meal.  The dinner is offered free to any who are in need or feeling lonely.  We invite them to come and get a meal that they can enjoy at home.
