Programs Supported by Your Donations
The Salvation Army Grove City Service Unit is comprised of community volunteers who offer hope through direct assistance to vulnerable individuals and families. We also do not have any physical building but offer direct services to clients in need. When applicants call The Salvation Army Grove Service Unit, they will reach a volunteer and arrangements are made to meet somewhere within the community to complete necessary paperwork on assistance needed. The Service Unit provides help with utility assistance, rental assistance, food, clothing, prescriptions, hotel stays for those that are homeless. The Salvation Army Grove City Service Unit offers various activities each year to reach a specific population. For example, we provide items to vulnerable seniors such as fresh produce, food, grocery store gift cards, vouchers to Salvation Army Family Store, hygiene items, and cleaning supplies.
We also provide a back-to-school clothing program to purchase new clothing for children so they have a positive start to a new school year. Our annual Woman’s Day program offers women a day “off” to focus on themselves. We have speakers who talk on a variety of subjects, financial planning, child care, etc. with lunch provided. Our purpose is clear, helping our neighbors in need.
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
Last year the need was not as great due to the pandemic compounded with the government shutdown and the freeze on evictions. This is no longer the case and we have been receiving calls for utility assistance with large balances as well as food, clothing, and other needs. Even if we collaborate with other location organizations it may be difficult to cover the funds needed for utility assistance. Moreover, we anticipate within the next few months, we will be receiving calls for rental assistance.
