St. John’s, Halifax and Toronto put Boots on the Ground
Today was an extremely busy day for our Boots on the Ground teams in St. John’s, Halifax and Toronto who were on the streets in their respective provinces searching for Veterans in crisis and educating the public about the services that VETS Canada is able to provide.
St. John’s Team Lead, Donald Hookey, started off at the War Memorial in downtown St. John’s
The St. John’s team ended their walk with a visit to the Salvation Army
