at school as they could. Support the hungry in our area!
Read below to learn how we help with basic needs that go unmet right here in our community.
Families and individuals can come to us once a month to receive groceries including fresh produce, canned goods, meat, and dairy (as available).
Families facing shut off notices from their utility company can request assistance. If the amount is more than we are able to cover, collaboration with other local agencies helps avoid a shut down.
Energy Assistance Program
Residents of Floyd County may sign up for the Energy Assistance Program which is state-funded to help families with their utility costs during the coldest and the hottest months of the year.
Clothing for families in a financial crisis can be provided for from our Thrift stores. Special emphasis is placed on this need during back to school time and over 300 children received clothes for school this year.
The Salvation Army serves victims and first responders that are involved in disaster situations. Specific help is based on the nature of the disaster but might include financial assistance, food provision (served from our mobile food unit), emergency shelter, and on-going case management.
Families may be provided clothing, toys, and food during the holiday season.
