THE SALVATION ARMY IN NEED OF HYGIENE ITEMS FOR RECORD NUMBER OF SHELTER RESIDENTS
Due to a record number of homeless shelter occupants, The Salvation Army is seeking help from the community through personal hygiene donations. The 14-bed shelter recently housed 29 individuals using the space to seek refuge from the regions freezing temperatures.
“Anytime we’ve called for help, this community has stepped up to give a hand up to their neighbors in need,” stated Major Shelley McClintock. “Today, we’re asking for your help to provide personal hygiene items to those seeking respite from the freezing temperatures at our shelter. The impact that a simple pair of socks and a bar of soap can have on the quality of someone’s life is overwhelming.”
Requested items include shampoo, soap, deodorant, female hygiene products, socks for men and women, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and warm hats and gloves to give to our community’s homeless residents.
Donations can be dropped off at The Salvation Army Family Services Office Monday-Friday, 9am-12pm and 1pm–4pm, The Salvation Army Kroc Center Collection Box during open hours, and The Salvation Army Shelter at any time.
