The Salvation Army is still meeting human need during this time of uncertainty and the COVID-19 pandemic.

We want to reassure all the people we serve and our donors that our doors are still open. As long as we can safely care for our neighbors - while observing official health regulations set forth by the CDC, HUD and local health officials -we will continue to do so.

Individuals we serve daily will feel the impacts of this crisis on a greater level. We need support from our community to be able to serve not only these vulnerable populations, but also people who never anticipated needing our help. The BEST way you can help at this time is through monetary donations.
