Dec 9, 2020 | by Stephanie Rex

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (December 9, 2020) – The Salvation Army Johnstown Worship and Service Center is postponing its annual Veterans’ Christmas Dinner due to the COVID-19 pandemic out of an abundance of caution for the safety of others. 

“Every year, we look forward to celebrating the season by serving dinner to our local veterans, and sadly, it is not safe for us to gather together this year due to the increase in COVID-19 cases,” said Captain Erin Smullen. “We truly look forward to providing a wonderful meal for our veterans as soon as it is safe to do so, and we want to remind the community that even while we are social-distancing, we are here for anyone who is facing emergency need.”

The Veterans’ Dinner was originally scheduled for Tuesday, December 15. It is now rescheduled for Friday, February 19. 

More details will be released closer to the new date. 

Celebrating over 150 years of global service as both a church and a social service organization, The Salvation Army began in London, England in 1865. Today, it provides critical services in 127 countries worldwide. The 28-county Western Pennsylvania Division serves thousands of needy families through a wide variety of support services.
