To keep our clients, staff, and volunteers safe, and in accordance with city and state guidelines, most programs at The Salvation Army Elgin Corps Community Center are closed until further notice. Modified programs and services may still be available. Fresh Produce Pantry items are pre-boxed and not client choice.
