TORONTO, May 15, 2012 /CNW/ – In order to continue operations, the Bethesda Centre in London, Ontario
must raise $1.5 million before May 31, 2012. The Salvation Army has set
up a website, www.salvationarmy.ca/savebethesda, to collect donations to save the centre. When you donate to this
secure site, you will receive a charitable donation receipt if the $1.5
million goal is met. If the goal is not reached by the deadline, The
Salvation Army will offer to provide you with a refund for your
donation. All donations are being held in trust until the May 31st
Another website currently being promoted to collect donations for this
effort, www.savebethesda.org, is not affiliated with The Salvation Army. Donations to this site will not be eligible to
receive an official charitable tax receipt from The Salvation Army.
Furthermore, The Salvation Army will not be able to provide refunds to
donors who donate via www.SaveBethesda.org if the goal is not met.
In order to ensure that your donation will go directly toward helping
the centre, please donate to www.salvationarmy.ca/savebethesda. Donations can also be sent to Divisional Headquarters, 371 King St.,
London and the Bethesda Centre at 54 Riverview Ave., London.
We are extremely gratified by the outpouring of concern and support from
many in the community who want to see the Bethesda Centre continue to
operate. We also appreciate the efforts of Justin Bieber and his
mother, Pattie Mallette, for drawing attention to this issue. We remain
optimistic that people will come through in support of this effort.
