Members of the Union Center Christian Church have also recently donated. “The homeless population, the helpless population, those who are down on their luck. Really anybody that needs our services we’re available to serve,” said Captain Joseph Hansen. Some of the businesses who have donated so far include Cracker Barrel, Ruby Tuesday, Traditions, Bimbos Bakeries. “We know that it’s impacting families who have lost jobs or have been laid off, so we know it’s impacted them but it’s nice to be able to give them a ray of hope in that we can be able to provide them with some food,” said Hansen. “We’re used to getting to know our clients, being with them, just getting to know them and showing them that they’re loved and they’re cared for,” said Hansen. “We couldn’t do this without the community support and we’ve had lots of restaurants step up to give us some produce and other foods so we could continue our mission,” said Hansen. “We’re always dependent on our donors to help us throughout the year. It’s really nothing new to us that the community would step up and really support us during a time when it’s the most needed,” said Hansen. Since the coronavirus pandemic, Hansen says the Salvation Army has seen three times more people walking through its doors. Despite serving more people, the organization has had to make changes and even some cuts to its programs– a reality that hurts.
