Salvation Army in Dire Need of Food
The Salvation Army is reaching out to the Coast for help.
The supply at their food bank has dropped to an extremely low level and they are hoping the Coast can help replenish it.
Salvation Army officials tell News 25 during the school year children get at least two meals a day at school. When school lets out for the summer, families depending on those school meals are left looking for food and that’s when they turn to the Salvation Army.
They want to make sure their food supply can meet the need. That’s where you can help. Salvation Army Area Commander Major Gary Sturdivant said, “We have barrels at the Wal-Mart in Pass Christian, D’Iberville, Biloxi and Gulfport, all of those locations. You can buy something for yourself then drop something in the barrel as you leave. You can also stop by any of our Salvation Army locations here on the Coast in Pascagoula, Gulfport and at the Salvation Army Kroc Center.”
Major Sturdivant tells News 25 the Salvation Army feeds anywhere from 300 to 600 families a year.
