The Salvation Army: A Letter from Major Lane

By Major Brenda Lane

Dear Friends and Community Family,

I hope this note finds each of you well and enjoying the Summer weather we are having, and yes, the rain, we need the rain. June brings us to the halfway mark for the year 2022!! Can you believe how fast it is passing with each day. Before you know it, we will be putting up Christmas decorations!!

I don’t need to remind you that we are all facing some pretty rough times as it relates to everyday living and the daily increase in the cost of food, gas, rent and so much more. We are seeing so many more families in our office who are facing the loss of jobs because they can’t afford the cost of gas to get back and forth. We are seeing families who are facing eviction due to the extreme rise in rent and mortgage. I fear it is only going to continue to get worse. We are assisting more families than usual with Emergency Food. Again, this is due to the loss of jobs and the rise in rents and overall cost of living.

We here at The Salvation Army stand ready to assist in any way we can. However, we can’t do it alone, it takes a village!! We need your help. There are so many ways in which you can help us help those coming to us for assistance every day. We need canned goods and nonparishablefood items to replenish our Emergency Food. We are getting requests for tarps, ponchos, help to pay for Medication, help with gas and so many other necessities. Because of the wonderful people in our community of Lehigh Acres, who support us, we continue to have the resources to serve those who come to us with various needs. Our resources are running low and we don’t want to turn anyone away if they have a legitimate need. We need your help…

If you are in a position to help with any of the things I have mentioned, or perhaps, you are able to make a monetary donation (tax-deductible), be assured your support will go a long way in allowing us to fill the needs and requests of those who are not able to provide for their families at this time. If you would like more information on ways to help us continue serving and providing for the needs of those who are struggling to make it day to day, please feel free to give us a call or stop by our office Monday thru Friday, 8:30 am to 4:00 pm (closed 12:00 to 1:00)

We are located at 25 Homestead Rd. N #42 (33936) – next to The Chamber of Commerce in the Lehigh Town Center Mall. Our phone # is 239-491-6071

We look forward to meeting you and sharing with you the services offered through our office.
