Open Your Heart provided Parkview Salvation Army with funding toward three new utility carts for use in both the food shelf and the Loaves and Fishes meal program, replacing the broken heavy-duty shelving with two new shelves in the storage pantry. New carts will help staff and volunteers be more efficient and safer.
Parkview Salvation Army offers emergency social services, providing a variety of funding to help individuals and families with help paying their rent, utility bills, and vouchers for transportation. They have a HeatShare program and also make referrals to Bridging where individuals and families can get basic household goods and furnishing for free. Through their daily hot lunch program, guests are served by Loaves and Fishes volunteers, their food shelf is open three days a week, and people can access free food daily.
“I wanted to thank you again for your support of our organization. For years Open Your Heart has helped us to provide critical services through the grant funds that have supported our food programs and homeless shelters.” – Parkview Salvation Army
