The Salvation Army is here to help
The Salvation Army continues to provide traditional social services to those we serve, including food and shelter. In Denver, and in other large communities, we are in constant communication with local governments and health departments to ensure the safety of our clients and staff.
Our mission is to serve those in need, in His name, without discrimination. We will continue to do this, especially in such times of need. As school districts close, we are aware of the pressure that puts on parents and will be available to help. As families and individuals are quarantined, we are preparing week-long food boxes so they don’t have to leave their home. As hard workers lose their jobs and sources of income, we can help them pay their utility or rent bills. As the threat of infection approaches our clients, we are taking extra measures to sanitize and make our facilities safe.
The Salvation Army will continue to keep our doors open to help our community. Our housing and shelter programs will remain open. In line with our mission and brand promise of Doing the Most Good, the health and wellbeing of those we serve and our staff are our highest priorities. The Salvation Army has increased its cleaning efforts at all its facilities, including our shelters and kitchens. Our staff is regularly cleaning and disinfecting in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Following CDC and government recommendations, The Salvation Army has cancelled large meetings and some other non-essential group meetings.
“The Salvation Army cares deeply for our clients, staff, volunteers and community. While we’re here all year long, we are stepping up our efforts during this time of uncertainty to be there for those who need us,” says Major Mike Dickinson, The Salvation Army Intermountain Divisional Commander.
Individuals we serve daily will feel the impacts of this crisis on a greater level. We need support from our community to be able to provide these vulnerable populations with adequate support throughout this pandemic. Learn more and give at salarmy.us/IMcovidinfo.
