This is what going hungry looks like–and we need your help

This is big, and this is serious.

What if your home pantry looked like this... and there was nowhere else to go?

What if your home pantry looked like this… and there was nowhere else to go?

Our O’Fallon Corps Community Center in Missouri sent us this picture. They feed 935 families per month–that’s over 400% increase over the last two years. But in June, all was well: they got 20,000 Ibs of food donated. And for those families who had nowhere else to turn, that was a good thing.

This month, they got 3,900 Ibs of food and that’s it. Now O’Fallon, and many other Salvation Army corps community centers in the St. Louis region, are at risk of turning those families away.

Whether it is a donation of food or of dollars, this is a critical need that we need your help to fill. We need your help right now to feed your neighbors throughout the region. We’re sending out an SOS: please Stock Our Shelves!

MOST NEEDED ITEMS: dry goods (pasta, rice, cereal, etc), canned meat and protein items.

If you would like to help or have questions, please email dana_biermann@usc.salvationarmy.org.

    I live in the Salvation Army Emergency Loge in Winter Haven, Florida where nightly I am being attacked with witchraft, images put into my eyes,other things that I have mentioned to a staff member who said she knows nothing about it. I’ve experienced dying nightly since i moved in August 6, 2013. I’d like to know if anyone has experienced the same things.

      Thanks for your comment! Keep talking to your caseworker and/or the shelter manager there about what you’re experiencing. While someone staying in our shelters or at the Harbor Light might come in experiencing similar things, it’s important that you keep letting Salvation Army staff know. We’re here to help, and experiencing those things can be scary. Our prayers are with you! Take care.
