Salvation Army still helping fire victims

-A +A
As an active advisory board member for The Salvation Army of Auburn, I would like to take a moment to inform the Journal’s readers of the organization’s work during the aftermath of the 49 Fire. The Salvation Army is offering continuing services to help the fire victims with their immediate as well as long-term needs. We are offering assistance to burnt-out families at absolutely no charge to the individuals. This was not what was stated in past letters. The types of assistance they’re providing do include vouchers to The Salvation Army’s Thrift Store. These are given to individuals and families at absolutely no charge. Families affected by the 49 Fire will not be charged for these vouchers in any instance, ever. The Salvation Army has also assisted families with food, shelter, furniture and rental assistance. The Salvation Army would like for the public to know that if they are fire survivors, please continue coming to the community center on Sutter Street for assistance. You will not be charged for assistance. The Salvation Army of Auburn and its loyal board members continuously strive to do the most good in the community of Auburn Keith Nesbitt, Auburn
