Club members were given an overview of all the goods and services that the Salvation Army provides to its clients.
The Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise hosted Mary Moore, Director of the Salvation Army/Hope House at its weekly meeting. Ms. Moore gave the club members an overview of all the goods and services that the Salvation Army provides to its clients, including free clothing and emergency food, financial assistance, emergency travel and gas, probation counseling and classes, weekly worship services and other special programs.
The Hope House provides a free dinner meal on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays through the Interfaith Dinner Network from 5:00pm – 7:00pm. In a couple of weeks the Salvation Army will be gearing up for its annual Senior Angel Tree program (in partnership with the Council on Aging) to help ensure low-income seniors are not forgotten at Christmas by matching them with families and groups who purchase gifts for them.
If you are interested in this program or others sponsored by the Salvation Army, you can speak to Mary Moore at the Hope House located at 410 S. 9th Street in Fernandina Beach.
The members of the Rotary Club were delighted to get the information on these programs early and many plan to assist as the holidays approach.
