Amy Holloway took photos at Freedom Kitchen in Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia, in December. She published a few of the photos online and gave some to Freedom Kitchen to use. Their Facebook banner – a Holloway photo – caught my eye.
Somehow, I don’t remember how, I learned Amy had photos of, or plans to photograph, Sackville Area Warming Centre. I was writing a story about SAWC at the time*. I contacted Amy and she proceeded to attend a meeting at Sackville Area Warming Centre and sent some some fabulous photographs. The meeting was to communicate information about SAWC and an opportunity for neighbours to drop off gift bags and other items to give to visitors of SAWC.
*The Sackville Area Warming Centre does not have beds as written in the article. My error. The warming centre offers a cozy space, warm hearts, snacks and links to other services in the community.
