The Salvation Army Corps across Massachusetts continue to provide childcare services to low-income families who depend on us. Our licensed childcare facilities remain open on a regular schedule. We are maintaining frequent cleaning and health check protocols.
Neighbors who rely on our food pantries and feeding programs may continue to pick up distributions on a regular schedule. All food distribution items are prepackaged for your safety and must be picked up outside.
To focus on the health and well being of everyone in the communities that we serve, all Salvation Army congregate programs have been suspended through April 5, 2020. While we recognize that this is an inconvenience for many who rely on The Salvation Army, please know that we are praying that we may reopen programs sooner. We will continue to provide updates.
The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Service is regularly coordinating with key local and state agencies, including Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, the Department of Public Health, Food Banks, and other agencies. Ensuring the well being of those who depend on The Salvation Army’s programs and services, along with that of staff and volunteers, is our utmost priority. Additional protocols are being formed quickly should further restrictions be placed on our communities. Please contact your local Corps with any questions.
