Back packs for kids

This year back packs for kids will look a little different. Please check back for more info on this initiative.


We are pleased to have a beautiful Salvation Army Thrift Store in downtown New Liskeard. Inside you will find good value in our quality gently used clothing. If you are in crisis and are in need of clothing or housewares (due to fire, flooding, family breakdown) please call the office and we can offer vouchers to get you back on your feet.
