Henderson, Ky. (WEHT)— The Salvation Army of Henderson is asking local businesses, schools and churches for donations to support its services and programs. 

Major Stephen Story of the Henderson Salvation Army says that donations are important right now because this is the first time a lot of families are going through hardship.

“Because of the many compassionate and generous Henderson community members, we have been able to provide support and resources to those in need for 84 years,” she says. “It’s a blessing to be able to come together as a community to support those in need, so we encourage Henderson leaders to get involved in the work we do.”

The Salvation Army offers case management, counseling and housing navigation for those in need. They also offer important necessities such as food, hygiene products, water, blankets, scarves and more.
