The Salvation Army of Greenville, Pickens and Oconee Counties continues to provide services to individuals and families during these uncertain times.
The Salvation Army’s emergency homeless shelter and men’s rehabilitation program continue to operate at capacity. Our shelter staff have identified 12 additional quarantine beds which are set aside for residents who are exhibiting symptoms of illness in an effort to keep our shelter population safe and healthy. We are serving bagged lunches to the community twice a week out of our shelter campus’s Stall Street entrance. We are also providing grocery boxes to the most vulnerable members of our community, and we are equipping families in need with school supplies for their children. We are issuing rent and utility assistance to families who have lost their jobs during this time of economic uncertainty.
“Every day of the year, The Salvation Army is there for families who need a helping hand,” says Major Andy Kelly, Area Commander of The Salvation Army of Greenville, Pickens and Oconee Counties. “And during times of disaster and crisis, we are still there. We will help families and individuals in need for as long as we are able, and we are grateful to our community for their continued support of us and those we serve.”
