The Salvation Army Needs Your Help to Change Lives

Hungry parents don't perform as well at work as they could.  Hungry children don't learn as well 

at school as they could.  Support the hungry in our area!

Donate now to meet the greatest need.

Donate

Last year 10,000 people in our community came to us to receive assistance.

Read below to learn how we help with basic needs that go unmet right here in our community.

Food Pantry

Families and individuals can come to us once a month to receive groceries including fresh produce, canned goods, meat, and dairy (as available).

Utility Assistance

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 Assistance

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.

Disaster Services

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.

Christmas Assistance

Families may be provided clothing, toys, and food during the holiday season.  

Eligibility Guidelines

  • Verification of residence, ID, Income, and household members.
