The Salvation Army is Providing 800 Food Boxes for the Community
If you are currently struggling to keep food on the table, know that you are not alone and the Salvation Army wants to help.
Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020 beginning at 10 am.
This is a continuation of the event that was held two weeks ago at The Salvation Army thrift store parking lot at 9 S 6th Avenue.
The event begins at 10 am and will continue until all boxes have been distributed.
Please help spread the word, assist those without a vehicle, and also one vehicle per family. This is on a first-come, first-serve basis with little to no contact for everyone's safety. The volunteers will place the box of food in your vehicle.
Curious what you would be receiving?
Each food box has an approximate value of $30 and contains non-perishable food such as pasta, rice, canned vegetables, cereal, and shelf-stable protein. One box can sustain a family of four for 2 – 3 days
Here is what the organizers had to say
“After the food distribution event in May, it was clear that families in our community need food on an ongoing basis,” said Lt Nicholas Helms, director of The Salvation Army in Yakima. On May 20, The Salvation Army distributed 500 boxes in two hours, with people coming from nearby counties for the food. “This week, we’ve increased the number of food boxes, so we can serve more families.”
We want to thank all the volunteers from the bottom of our hearts for donating time, money, and items to make this successful.
