Salvation Army offers help to residents


SIDNEY – The Salvation Army in Sidney is ready to assist in this time of uncertainty caused by COVID-19. They are ready to assist in any way they can.

The Food Pantry has received permission to increase a patron’s visits from once a month to twice a month during these difficult times. On top of an extra pantry visit, they will also be giving out extra food in their boxes.

During a time where people should limit their exposure to others, The Salvation Army’s Sidney location is offering a pantry box delivery service. Anyone who finds themselves in need of Food Pantry services but cannot leave their home, can call to arrange delivery of their pantry items.

“The Salvation Army is willing to do what ever we can to help everyone through these tough times” said Capt. Samantha Lockard. “The services we provide to the community will look drastically different than we’re used to, but we are ready to serve the community the best we can.”

Shut-ins who find themselves in need of shopping or necessary errand running can reach out to The Salvation Army for assistance.

“We recognize that there will be many people who are unable to leave their homes to run necessary errands like grocery shopping” said Lt. Katie Mayes. “We are willing to come alongside those people in this time. We have a small team but we are ready to take action.”

Anyone needing assistance can call The Salvation Army at 937-492-8421 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. If The Salvation Army is unable to meet your need they will do their best to connect you with the right people who can help meet your need.
