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.
