EAST JORDAN SATELLITE LOCATION OPEN THURSDAYS 9:30AM-3:00PM
The East Jordan satellite location for The Salvation Army of Petoskey is now open for Walk-In intake appointments at the Crossroads Resale Shop and Care and Share Food Pantry on Thursdays from 9:30AM-3:00PM.
The intent is to provide easier access to services for those with transportation barriers who live a further distance from the main office in Petoskey. Although the satellite location is in Charlevoix County, it is very close to the border of Antrim County making it accessible to residents in either area. The Salvation Army of Petoskey serves residents of Antrim, Charlevoix and Emmet County.
Households located in the outer border areas typically receive help through our Emergency Financial Assistance Program (EFAP) which provides help with rent, heat, electricity, food, clothing, auto repair, other utilities and more that affect a household's livelihood. We also provide holiday assistance such as vouchers to food stores for holiday meals and toys for children at Christmas.
A great service that those living a further distance from the main office can take advantage of is Summer Camp for kids at Little Pine Island. Due to the pandemic, the camps are just beginning to re-open; however, they should be in full-service swing by next spring. Little Pine Island is a Salvation Army camp located in Comstock Park, just north of Grand Rapids. It is ACA accredited, all counselors and chaperones are "Safe From Harm" trained, and the camp provides all daily meals and The Salvation Army of Petoskey provides transportation to and from the camp.
Camps range in age and activities such as sports, music, adventure and more. They also offer traditional free-time activities such as fishing, boating, swimming, archery, games and much more. Attending campers must have completed 1st grade and attend through 12th grade.
