Salvation Army introducing donation buckets in effort to provide for the community

The Salvation Army is stepping up its efforts to help those most in need during this time and they need your help.

In addition to expanding their lunch service for seniors, the Salvation Army on the Mississippi Gulf Coast has added blue barrels for donations outside four of their coastal locations.

Anyone can drop off canned food, dry food goods, or cleaning supplies to the buckets at any time which will go towards helping those who need some assistance during this crisis.

Area Commander Major Bradley Caldwell says continuous community outreach during this time is vital.“I think we’re moving into harder days, not easier. So those services we’re trying to offer will not only be good for the body, but good for the emotions and relationships of people as well.”

You can drop off goods at 2019 22nd Street in Gulfport, 575 Division Street in Biloxi, 3217 Nathan Hale Avenue in Pascagoula, and 52 Virginia Street in Lucedale.

If you want to donate in other ways you can call the Salvation Army at 228-374-8301.
