Salvation Army supplies dwindling

An organization dedicated to helping our community needs your help.  The Salvation Army is running low on food.  The Montgomery Chapter says with more and more families depending on the organization to put food on the table, the supply in the River Region is dwindling and food isn't the only need.  They also help struggling families with utilities.

"We don't feed statistics, we feed people," remarks Captain Roy Harris, explaining his assessment of increased need and supporting what appears in the headlines. "In this community, we are seeing a whole new population coming to us for food. Our regulars are now being joined by the formerly middle-class, a group that's just begun to embrace a nightmare they probably thought they'd never see -- no money for food. With foreclosures and gasoline and utility costs rising, not to mention the fear of recession, times are hard for many in our community."

Last year in Montgomery we distributed 4035 bags of groceries and served 122,346 prepared meals. Across the nation, The Salvation Army served more than 60,000,000 meals to those in need.

"The Salvation Army has always served the neediest," says Harris, "and we will continue to respond to cries for help from those who need it most. But we depend on the support of the community to do our work. We urge our friends to make a gift so we can help those who are hurting most of all."
