Salvation Army Needs Donations for the Holidays

Posted: Updated:

With Thanksgiving less than two weeks away, more and more families are relying on the Salvation Army for support, but in a tough economy the Food Pantry shelves are as bare as ever.

"Our shelves have been hit really hard this year. I believe definitely a part of it is the economy," says Shae Wells, the lead case worker for the Salvation Army.

The organization serves more than 25 families daily, but around holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas they serve more than a hundred, trying to provide 3 meals for 3 days, but right now, there's only enough meat to provide for one day.

"Our shelves are bare. We're really struggling when it comes to meats, vegetables. Normally, when it comes to green beans, we have an abundance. We're even struggling with green beans at this time of year," says Wells.

You can drop any donations off at the Salvation Army located on West 15th.
