Paso Robles dedicates new facility
Field office for service extension unit opens.
Recently, a building dedication ceremony was held in Paso Robles, California for the new service extension unit at 711 Paso Robles Street.
“This is a long time in coming,” said Ms. Cathy Ramsdale, regional director of the San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara County Service Extensions of The Salvation Army, to the over 100 community supporters that were in attendance. “We have been working for over 30 years in this area, serving the needs of our clients during a disaster, without the use of a real field office.”
The money to buy the land for the new building, along with money set aside to pay for the maintenance of the San Luis Obispo canteen (mobile kitchen unit), was left in the form of a trust to The Salvation Army by longtime Paso Robles residents, Claude Booker and Dick Booker.
