The current president of Kelowna’s Rotary Club has added another leadership role under her belt.
Lenetta Parry has joined the Westside Salvation Army’s management team.
Pastor Rob Henson with the branch said Parry will help them build strong community partnerships by working on donor, volunteer, customer and media relations.
“She brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, community connections and passion to the position and we are thrilled to have her on our team,” he said in a statement.
Parry is a long-time Westside resident and has assisted in facilitating the “Westside Visioning Forum”. She was the vice-chair of the Westside Naming Committee and still volunteers with Westside Daze.
She is known for her work with local food banks for the last 14 years and her various volunteer activities.
“The Salvation Army does so much more than offer basic necessities such as food, furniture and clothing. When people come to us for help, we help address deeper issues and take a longer-term holistic approach to helping individuals and families,” she said.
“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.”
Parry added she is looking forward to helping raise awareness of the work that the Westside Salvation Army does in Westbank, West Kelowna and Peachland.
