Food pantry shortfall at the Salvation Army in Muskegon | Community Spirit
Salvation Army News Release – The Salvation Army food pantry in Muskegon is looking to the local community to respond to a severe shortage of food donations over the summer months. The pantry has been nearly depleted as many individuals have experienced difficulty in providing food for their families due to continuing economic hardship. In addition to food assistance, many of these families are also receiving utility assistance and housing stabilization plans. As The Salvation Army responds to these needs with increased family services and programs, the pantry shortfall becomes especially acute.
“The Salvation Army continues to be committed to serving the needs of the local community and we are hopeful that the citizens of Muskegon will continue their support of The Salvation Army food pantry. With the increased need throughout the year, we are looking to our community to help us meet our goal of restocking our food pantry this fall,” said Captain Daniel Sawka, Muskegon Corps Community Center Officer. “I am certain that Muskegon will help us fulfill our commitment to this goal, which will allow us to serve those who depend on us to meet basic human needs,” he added.
The public can support The Salvation Army food pantry by dropping off non-perishable food items to The Salvation Army, 1221 Shonat Street, Muskegon, MI 49442-5363 or by calling 231.773.3284. This and other local initiatives can also be supported by sending financial gifts directly to The Salvation Army in Muskegon at Post Office Box 1116, Muskegon, MI 49443-1116.
