While some within the industry may recognize today as Salvation Army Founders’ Day, the reality is that most of us are just trying to figure things out in a changing, frustrating, and truly isolating pandemic quarantine. And for some, all this time at home has spawned a new kind of Spring Cleaning, a time for pulling out clothes and assorted household goods that are no longer in use, hoping to make a difference with a simple donation. But the Salvation Army of Florida
is encouraging a very specific line of donations, if at all possible.
As the coronavirus COVID-19 has evolved into a pandemic, we are monitoring the situation daily. Safety is of utmost priority, so we have ramped up efforts to slow the spread of this virus among our employees, volunteers, and the homeless and other vulnerable people we serve. In the United States, one in six people live in poverty, and more than 550,000 are counted as homeless. These populations severely lack access to proper care, hygiene, updated information, and medical resources, which makes them more susceptible to the virus. This is where we come in. This is who we serve.
In other words, the best things you can donate right now, according to one local news source out of Orange County, are “non-perishable food(s), baby supplies, hygiene products, cleaning and sanitizing items, and paper products.”
