The Salvation Army will serve a traditional Easter Dinner on Sunday thanks to a local philanthropist.

Sam Sinjari has donated 40 turkeys to make sure everyone has the opportunity to enjoy a healthy, hearty meal together on Easter Sunday.

“Windsor has been hit hard with job losses recently. There are people who need a hot meal, but also the companionship, especially on Easter,” says Sinjari. “People go through difficult times…if we get together we can help restore faith and hopefully help others overcome these challenges.”

Dinner will be served at the Windsor Centre of Hope location at 355 Church Street from 5pm to 7pm.

The Army expects to serve roughly 300 people.

“The Salvation Army has much to celebrate and in the spirit of Easter we want to meet the needs of this community, says Paul Rideout, executive director of The Salvation Army Windsor Community Services. “The meal provides substance for the body but it also provides a safe place for the community to come together under the banner of unity.”
