We Are Here for Our Community

We are here to serve.

The Salvation Army is still meeting human need during this time of uncertainty and the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We want to reassure all the people we serve and our donors that our doors are still open. As long as we can safely care for our neighbors - while observing official health regulations set forth by the CDC, HUD and local health officials - we will continue to do so. Individuals we serve daily will feel the impacts of this crisis on a greater level. 

While there is still need, The Salvation Army is here to serve.

 

Individuals we serve daily will feel the impacts of this crisis on a greater level.

• There are people who still need shelter

• There are children who still need a place to go if their parents have to work.

• There are families who still need food and help with the utility bill.

We need support from our community to be able to provide these vulnerable populations with adequate support throughout this pandemic.

The BEST way you can help at this time is through monetary donations.

Our corps have always worked hard to adapt to the ever-changing needs of the communities we serve – and now is no different.
