Captain Jeff Carter of the Salvation Army and residents of Park Centre met on Monday as the Park Centre Resident Wellness Committee donated hundreds of non-perishable food items and more than $300 to The Salvation Army Food Pantry. The Resident Wellness Committee is a group of Park Centre residents who decide what wellness initiatives they would like to focus on and chose to give to the food pantry because they wanted to give back to the community at a local level.
