LANCASTER – The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the Lancaster Salvation Army’s ability to raise funds to help those in need. They are helping the needy with food and rental and housing assistance. Their Red Kettle Campaign has been the main fundraiser to meet those needs, but with uncertainties due to the coronavirus, the ability to raise funds is more challenging. The Lancaster Salvation Army is kicking off their #RESCUE CHRISTMAS campaign today from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. by serving refreshments and collecting funds from their Emergency Disaster Canteen located their 131 S. Queen Street entrance. Folks can stop by today to show their support. Major Dean Satterlee, Lancaster Commanding Officer, said they have served over 10,000 meals during the pandemic and have clocked thousands of hours of disaster relief, social service, and emotional spiritual care during this time. If can’t stop by today, you can also make a donation to the Lancaster Salvation Army online by clicking on the banner below.
