Mark’s Work Wearhouse is doing good in a bad situation. The retail store, currently closed temporarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic, donated a large quantity of new clothing to the Salvation Army in Kemptville. 

Director Calvin Wong says the items are being handed out to food bank clients. He noted the food bank remains open by appointment only. Wong explained pre-packaged food hampers containing a two-week supply are being distributed.  

He says the Salvation Army will continue to provide assistance to anyone in need during this difficult time. He noted the abundant supply of food that came in through Fill-a-Bag has made a big difference when it comes to meeting the increase in demand. 

Anyone in need of help can contact the office by calling 613-258-3583.    

Wong explained that the Kemptville Salvation Army Thrift Store, located on Asa Street, is no longer accepting donations as a precautionary measure.
