CLEARFIELD – The Salvation Army is in desperate need of community help to be able to give holiday food assistance to those in need.
The Salvation Army has already signed up 200 households that sought holiday food (and for many toys for children).
Yet, donations have been very low this year, and they are struggling to provide meat with the food boxes.
The organization is still in need of 100 more turkeys or ham for these baskets. It is turning to the community to again ask for help.
Anyone able to donate a turkey, ham or a monitory donation designated to meat for the holiday food baskets is asked to bring it to the Salvation Army before Dec. 19.
“This is such an incredibly giving community, and I am convinced they will help as they know there is a need,” Captain Helen Johnson said.
The Salvation Army thanks all for their continued support with their ongoing kettle drive, which supports the Salvation Army’s programs and social services all year long, and for their continued help with the Treasures for Children toy program.
The drop-off for meat donations is Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at 119 Byers St.
Checks can be mailed to P.O. Box 978 or dropped off in a red kettle with the memo note “holiday meat assistance.” For any questions, call: 814-765-4981.
