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.

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.

“Helping others makes me feel like I am doing right to the world, and who knows, maybe my one little thing that I did could mean the world to someone,” he said.

Since 2012, Mackall has logged more than 4,000 hours of volunteer service between BOSS, Salvation Army, Boy Scouts and working with Special Olympics.

“Volunteering is something that I do not like to be rewarded for doing because to me it just feels right,” he said

APSU’s Center for Service-Learning & Community Engagement, campus community partner to aid national hurricane relief efforts

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – When Hurricane Maria — a Category 4 hurricane with winds up to 150 mph — ripped through the island of Puerto Rico on September 20th, 2017, the fury of Mother Nature appeared relentless, but Puerto Rico native and Austin Peay State University senior psychology major Maydaliz Bultron knew better than most that the damage left in the storm’s wake would be the true challenge for the island and its people.

“I grew up in Puerto Rico and I lived through Hurricane George (in 1998), so I understand what life is like in the wake of a storm,” Bultron said. “I remember things like not having running water and having to get ready for school in the dark with candles because the electricity had been knocked out during the storm.”

APSU takes in over a quarter-ton of goods and supplies for Hurricane Relief.
