GREENSBORO, N.C. - After nearly 200 people were forced to move out of Heritage House in Greensboro, the local Salvation Army is now stepping in to provide hot meals to those who need it.
Over the next 2 weeks, the Salvation Army's Emergency Disaster Assistance Mobile Canteen will be set up at the Regency Hotel, where many former Heritage House residents are staying.
They'll serve three meals a day for up to 14 days. Each day will cost an estimated $900 If it stays up for a full two weeks, the bill totals $12,600.
This is what the Salvation Army does. When you put money in the red kettle during the holidays, you help pay for this kind of assistance for local families. The red kettle isn't the only way to help.
Local churches, restaurants or individuals can donate food or sponsor a specific meal or day of meals for this effort. Monetary donations can also be made online or by sending a check to the Salvation Army.
