The Salvation Army is doing everything we can to serve people across the state while Social Distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to Walmart, we have created a registry to help our community during this COVID-19 Crisis. 

All items purchased from this registry will be delivered directly to The Salvation Army Eagle Creek Corps and distributed to those in need.

Greetings:

The Salvation Army’s mission has always been to meet human need in Jesus’ name and to preach the Gospel.  With the spread of the Covid-19, that mission remains the same.

The Salvation Army Eagle Creek will continue to provide for those in need, while taking precautions to keep our community safe.

As of Tuesday, March 17, 2020, our community center will take the following responsive actions:

  • All programs, both youth and adult, will be paused until further notice. Our Food Pantry (Fridays, 9:00a - 12:00p), and Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP monthly senior food box distribution; 4th Wednesday each month, 1:00p - 4:00p) will continue at their normal times, but as "drive-through" pick-up only.

  • Our office hours will be reduced to limit traffic in the building.  Our building will be open Monday - Thursday,  11:00a - 2:00p. We will be available by appointment only outside of those times.

  • Our maintenance staff will continue the increased cleaning procedures. 

  • Our Sunday activities (Small Groups and Worship) will be paused.  We are working to provide web-based worship services for families to worship in their homes. 

  • To assist with students not having school, our Community Center will provide student activity bags Monday through Friday during our new temporary office hours (11:00a - 2:00p).

Isolation and social distancing can be challenging for many.  If you need prayer or someone to talk during this time, please contact our office.  We would love to be present with you as best we can.

Please stay tuned to our social media and website for additional announcements regarding The Salvation Army Eagle Creek.
