Non-profit seeks to address urgent need
The Salvation Army’s Chattanooga Area Command will kick off its regional Love Beyond Hunger campaign at the Walmart Supercenters in Fort Oglethorpe and Hixson. The campaign serves as an invitation to employees, donors, volunteers, and anyone who wishes to lend aid to join the mission of providing love, care and assistance to all who need it. The Salvation Army hopes to inspire people to help one another in long-lasting, meaningful ways that transcend difficult situations and address unfortunate circumstances.
Locally, The Salvation Army is in urgent need of in-kind food donations for the Blessing Place, which opened last year and provides the homeless with a food shopping experience at no cost to them. They are also in need of food donations for their Social Services Food Pantry.
There are multiple ways for the community to make food donations:
- August (all month long): Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Salvation Army Area Command in Chattanooga (food items are tax-free in Tennessee throughout August)
Items Needed Include:
- Canned goods (meats, soups, fruits, and vegetables)
- Peanut butter and jelly
- Individually wrapped snack items
- Waters and sports drinks
