We are continuing to be a major food supplier for people in need in Clark and Floyd Counties.  Our requests for food have doubled since the same time last year.  We are working hard to ensure that our pantry is stocked.  We have launched an online food request form for Floyd County and we are doing food deliveries in both counties.  We are accepting donations of food, pet food, and toiletry items.

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 New Albany Corps and distributed to those in need.

Ensuring the safety of those who depend on The Salvation Army’s programs and services, along with the safety of staff and volunteers, is of utmost priority. We are closely tracking progress through the Center for Disease Control reporting and distributing prevention guidance to all staff, employees, volunteers, and program participants on proper hygiene and prevention.

  • The Salvation Army Indiana Division is currently preparing for the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, closely following guidelines issued from government officials.

  • The Salvation Army is providing emotional and spiritual care to individuals and families during this crisis to calm fears and provide a ministry of hope and encouragement.

  • We have closed all thrift stores and are not accepting donations.

  • The Salvation Army would like to remind everyone that the preventative measures put in place are to ensure everyone’s safety, health and well being.
