These recent weeks have been trying for all of us as we witness the effects of the coronavirus. In one way or another, we are all impacted by this outbreak. Many of us are fortunate enough that we can weather the storm with minimal disruption. In fact, know that we are actively praying for you during this time. For the thousands that we work with across New York state, this disruption threatens to break not only their livelihood but their spirits as well. The Salvation Army expects this virus will disproportionately impact low-income families and individuals experiencing homelessness.
We've been monitoring the spread of the virus closely and have been making changes accordingly to support the most vulnerable individuals throughout our communities while minimizing the risk of infection. We're taking unprecedented measures to maintain continuity of service to those who look to us for support while keeping our staff, volunteers, and clients safe. We are following guidance as it evolves from county and state officials and putting procedures in place to screen and provide appropriate care should anyone show symptoms of the coronavirus.
Below are a few of the preventative measures that The Salvation Army is taking, out of an abundance of caution, to ensure the safety of our clients, staff, and volunteers:
COVID – 19 is an unpredictable threat to all of us, and most especially those who The Salvation Army assists each day. Now more than ever, we need YOU!
Our virtual food drive allows you to make a team and encourage your company, community group, church or sports team to join and fundraise as well. You can also make a page as an individual and share it on your social media, via email or text message or other social media community groups you belong to.
Together we can meet these needs now and in the weeks and months to come!
This is an uncertain time for all of us. With the help of neighbors like you, we will keep our doors - and our hearts - open for neighbors in need, supplying them with much-needed assistance they so desperately require.
