Alpena Salvation Army is Helping Those in Need with Food, Clothing, Utility and Shelter Costs

The Salvation Army has many resources for the homeless, but also for those with a home and jobs, that are struggling. “We have a food pantry, but we also have a personal care pantry. So, if you have personal care items that you are in need of, we have it here. We also have a voucher system where if you need clothing or household items, we can send you to our thrift store with a voucher to be able to provide the items that you need. Utilities, if you’re struggling with your utility bill, then you can come to see us, and we can guide you in that. We also help with some rent and some mortgages, depending on what the issue and the situation that you’re in,” Corps Officer for the Salvation Army, Major Prezza L. Morrison said.

Upcoming programs rely on the Alpena community. “One of them is our undergarment distribution. We’re always looking for donations of undergarments for our children. We provide underwear, t shirts, bras and socks for the young kids. Right now, we’re doing pretty good with the younger kids, but we’re really struggling with the junior high and high school kids. As you know, many junior high and high schoolers wear adult sizes. Everyone likes to buy those little, teeny socks that look so cute. Really, we need the bigger sizes to fit that the people that we serve here in this community,” said Morrison.
