Last year, the Salvation Army’s social services came in contact with 6,380 people, providing and distributing 770 food boxes, according to Brinlee. In contrast, just over 200 people received utility assistance.

Those needing food should reach out to the Salvation Army by calling 870-424-5708 to make an appointment. Brinlee adds applicants don’t even have to come in the building. Food can be brought to their car as a protective measure.

With the closing of the thrift store, donations will become even more important for the relief agency.
