The Salvation Army delivers hope to seniors

Posted: Updated:

The Salvation Army has a new delivery program for seniors in our community. 

"During this unprecedented crisis, we're looking for unique ways to provide hope," Salvation Army Major David Worthy said.

Through the "Hope Tote" initiative, the Salvation Army is delivering boxes full of supplies to seniors.

"Individuals are a little less likely to get out, obviously authorities are encouraging us to stay away and distance ourselves, that we would make them available and deliver to those in need," Major Worthy said.

It usually provides services for people without a home or in crisis. Now, they're branching out.

"Now we're all experiencing a crisis, many of these hope totes are going to the elderly and seniors who live alone," Major Worthy said.

The Salvation Army is trying to attach hope to these packages.

"Our hope is to provide some respite and some hope," Major Worthy said.

Volunteers have delivered 20 totes and as requests come in, they're ready to make more.

To impact as many people as possible, it's calling for more donations. It's looking for canned goods, non-perishable long shelf-life foods, paper goods and hygiene supplies. Items can be dropped off at The Salvation Army's offices at 1111 16th Street in Lubbock Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Anyone needing a Hope Tote can call social services office at 806-765-9434 to request the delivery of one.
