• Cooma says thanks

Cooma Corps Officer Aux-Lieut Anthony Barford thanks Local Member for Eden-Monaro Kristy McBain alongside Salvos Stores staff.

Member for Eden-Monaro Kristy McBain stopped by Cooma Salvos Stores last Friday (15 September) to receive a certificate of appreciation for her help and support.

The Salvation Army received a $16,500 Commonwealth Grant as a part of the Stronger Communities Program, which has been put towards effective heating and cooling in the Cooma store, Corps Officer Aux-Lieutenant Anthony Barford said.

“We would like to thank Kristy for all her help and the work she does to support the community. The new infrastructure will help volunteers and staff stay comfortable while they support our community,” Anthony said.

Ms McBain said she loves supporting organisations right across Eden-Monaro, especially those like The Salvation Army that do so much in our community, which many may not be aware of.

“For people who are in need of the services of The Salvation Army, it is literally life-changing for them, and we should make sure volunteers and employees of The Salvation Army have a place they can come to which will be warm in winter and cool in summer,” she said.

“It’s not only good for those volunteers and employees, but it’s also good for those community members who find this a safe space to come to.

“Whatever we can do to assist what The Salvation Army does we are more than happy to support.

“We absolutely take the lead of Sandra and Tony (Corps Offcers), the volunteers, and the organisation as a whole. This is a huge kudos to everyone involved in The Salvation Army in Cooma because without their work we wouldn’t know how or what to support them with, and we are thrilled to be able to support them.”
