Westside Salvation Army has hired Lenetta Parry to be a member of its management team.
Parry is a longtime West Kelowna resident who has a passion for volunteerism, humanitarian work, politics, and community development. She assisted in the facilitation of the Westside Visioning Forum, she served as vice-chair on the Westside Naming Committee and volunteers with Westside Daze.
“Parry’s new role with the Westside Salvation Army will be to help build strong community partnerships by strengthening donor, volunteer, customer and media relations,” pastor Rob Henson said in a press release. “She brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, community connections and passion to the position, and we are thrilled to have her on our team.”
The Westside Salvation Army serves Westbank, West Kelowna and Peachland, and Parry can’t wait to help those in need on a deeper level.
“We do so much more than offer basic necessities such as food, furniture and clothing,” Parry said. “When people come to us for help, we help address deeper issues and take a longer-term holistic approach to helping individuals and families.
“We want people to realize their hopes and dreams. We are a resource to our partner organizations, and we seek out and help fill gaps wherever they may be.”
