Programs Supported by Your Donations
This past year The Salvation Army of New Castle was granted with an Emergency Feeding Vehicle.
Our team created a mobile feeding program in January 2022 based upon need of the community.
We feed between 40-50 lunch meals every Monday at Skyview Towers a local low income Highrise.
The meals include protein, vegetables, fruit , dessert and beverage.
One resident stated, “This is such a blessing!” and yet another was amazed at the deliciousness of the meatloaf! We’d love to continue, this much needed program and possible expand to McGrath Towers in the coming months. The funds raised at wonderful fundraising event will help us to purchase food, disposable plates, cups, utensils, napkins
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
The Salvation Army has long been at the forefront of feeding hungry people in our community. As we researched the needs of our communities, we discovered two area complexes that were not recipients of a community feeding program. Since many of the resident are shut-ins or have disabilities, we wanted to bring a meal to where they live. We chose Skyview Towers as our test site- This site has over 200 residents and has consistently fed around 50 meals per visit. We expect these numbers to rise due to the impending inflation.
