Local Salvation Army Needs Food Donations

MADISONVILLE, Ky. (11/14salv army1 300/13) – With only two weeks before Thanksgiving, the Salvation Army that serves both Hopkins and Muhlenberg Counties reports its food bank is empty.

Serving between 175 to 200 families with numbers growing each month, they simply can’t keep food stocked longer than two to three days after receiving its food delivery from a food bank based out of Evansville, Ind. called the Tri-State food bank.

“With all the cutbacks on the food stamps that started, we have noticed a higher need for food,” said Kassy Holmes, social worker for Salvation Army.

Currently the local Salvation Army is accepting donations for all types of non-perishables foods and meats that can be frozen.

“We have empty freezers, too, right now,” said Holmes. “So anyone who can donate meats along with non-perishables would greatly be appreciated.”

The Salvation Army will hosts its community meal from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 26 at 805 McCoy Ave., Madisonville.

For more information about donations, call 270-825-3620.
