UPS DELIVERS DONATIONS OF EMERGENCY FOOD DURING NATIONAL SALVATION ARMY WEEK
WHO: Employee’s from UPS have been collecting breakfast food to help fight hunger and support The Salvation Army Social Services Food Pantry since Monday, April 29. Packages of donated items will be delivered and weighed on today, Friday, May 17.
The Salvation Army food pantry provides a 2-3 day supply of emergency food to neighborhood individuals and families who are hungry. The food is given on the day it is requested and represents breakfast, lunch and dinner for all members of the household. Those receiving food are also informed about how they can participate in supplemental food programs so they can move beyond visiting charity food pantries. Our current geographic area includes residents of the 53205 and 53208 zip codes. Individuals living outside of this service are served at their initial visit then referred to the pantry that serves their neighborhood. The Salvation Army Food Pantry is supported through community food drives and donations from Hunger Task Force.
To host a food drive contact Faithe Colas, Community Relations Director at 414-302-4300 x2243 or cell, 414-531-6363.
