Programs Supported by Your Donations
Many of our programs and services are held in our meeting room. This includes public feeding programs, youth enrichment activities, our senior center, men’s & women’s groups, and much more. We are in need of replacing our existing lighting with LED lights to be more energy efficient and save on the overall utility costs.
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
The Salvation Army - Sharon is concentating on two areas.
1) with the inflationary prices effectng all of us, the demand for food assistance in increasing rapidly. The Salvation Army is committed to meeting this demand and serving our neighbors in need. This year there has been a 45% increase in familis seeking assistance. This demand is stretching our resources.
2) our Senior Center was forced to close during the covid-19 pandemic. Our area senior citizens lost a place of connection when our doors shut. The program has reopened however the lack of funding only provides for 1 day a month. Our desire is to open each week.
