Army in Guelph has received a donation for their Christmas hamper
campaign from an unlikely source.  This year, ARMMI (Agriculture Response
Materials Management Inc.) has donated several thousand bottles of hand
soap, hand sanitizers and wet wipes to the local campaign.

“The Salvation Army and agriculture have always been a large part of the make-up in and around the Guelph area,” says Lynn McNiven, ARMMI’s general manager. “This year an excellent opportunity existed for agriculture to contribute to this worthwhile community campaign."

Beverleigh Broughton, Director of Community & Family Services for the Salvation Army expressed appreciation for the toiletry items, of which a portion were packed in 2,015 sunshine bags that will be distributed to seniors in 20 facilities in Guelph. The remaining items will be distributed through the hampers in The Salvation Army Community & Family Services office.

For more than 130 years, the Salvation Army has been making a difference and not just by providing Christmas hampers. Disaster can occur at any time and in any place. Whenever disaster strikes, the presence of the Salvation Army is expected and welcomed.

Agriculture Response Materials Management Inc. is a relatively new, not-for-profit agricultural organization. ARMMI’s mandate is to ensure that, in the event of a disease outbreak, farmers and farm workers will have access to an adequate supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other emergency equipment and supplies required by the poultry and livestock industries.

An initiative of the Ontario Poultry sector, ARMMI is jointly funded by the poultry industry, the provincial government through OMAFRA and the federal government through the Agricultural Adaptation Council, CanAdvance Program.
