Salvation Army Accepting Needed Supplies at Service Centers

 

Alexandria, VAThe Salvation Army, the nation’s largest social services organization, is evolving efforts to meet rising need due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). With a presence in almost every ZIP code in America, The Salvation Army is uniquely positioned to meet the changing needs of America’s most vulnerable. Monetary donations allow the most efficient response to evolving demand, but the organization will now accept select in-kind goods at locations across the country.

“Responding to crisis is in our DNA,” says Commissioner David Hudson, national commander of The Salvation Army. “In our 150-year history, societal events have taught us to be flexible and adapt.”

Monetary gifts remain most effective form of support, but country's largest social service provider will accept nonperishable goods to aid in meeting urgent need.

Soldiers train for decisive action

 

Written by Staff Sgt. Christopher Klutts
20th Public Affairs Detachment

US Army Special Operations CommandFort Polk, LA – An American man has a heart attack on the third floor of a hotel that doubles as an evacuee holding area. Protestors chant for change outside a U.S. consulate. A small village is struck with measles and enemy artillery rocks a city – all of this happens between lunch and dinner.

By design, training scenarios are complex at the Joint Readiness Training Center in Fort Polk, LA. Hundreds of role-players assume fake identities and mill around a mock foreign country. Its landscape is dotted with towns and villages, the names of which change based on the real-world region a unit might operate in.
