Ind. (WEHT) — The Salvation Army provided an update on its services Friday.
The organization says their community centers across Indiana are closed to the public through April 5, but the majority of social service ministries will continue with adjustments.
- Food pantries are now serving clients with food boxes that can be loaded into vehicles at drive-through stations. Specific locations and hours of operation are available through each Salvation Army corps’ website and social media pages.
- Congregate feeding programs are using take-out boxes or bagged lunches to continue feeding the community. The Salvation Army says the volunteer needs are great in several cities, including Evansville.
- Emergency assistance interviews have transitioned from in-person to over the phone.
- All Salvation Army thrift stores are currently closed to the public, and no donations are being accepted at this time.
- Where possible, Sunday worship at Salvation Army corps has transitioned to remote worship via live streaming services. In addition, The Salvation Army Indiana Division will provide weekly online worship each Sunday on SalvationArmyIndiana.org and Facebook.com/SalvationArmyIndiana.
