The Salvation Army of New Jersey is committed to meeting the needs of our community during the Coronavirus pandemic. As a leader in the fight against poverty, we are keenly aware of our responsibilities to provide help and hope to those who are most vulnerable.
Ensuring the safety of those who depend on The Salvation Army’s programs and services, along with the safety of our volunteers and staff, is of the utmost priority. We are currently working closely with the New Jersey Department of Emergency Management and other government and nonprofit agencies to ensure that our services remain available.
We are anticipating, and planning for, an increase in need. Our corps community centers are prepared to assist those in need of emergency services, which includes our feeding programs. With the disproportionate risk to the senior population we are conducting an outreach to senior citizens in communities to ensure that they stay safe and that they have necessary provisions.
The Salvation Army will remain Jersey Strong and continue to meet the needs of our communities for years to come.
