Salvation Army Family Home Resource Kits

The Salvation Army Youth Education Town in Arlington continues to lend a helping hand to community members in need. As a result of COVID-19, the nonprofit organization has provided 1,851 families with Family Home Resource Kits designed to help kids stay active while at home.

“The kits include emergency food, school supplies and curriculum from our Summer Day Camp Program and are geared toward helping kids continue their learning experience,” said Bridget Lenhardt, special events and volunteer supervisor.

Family Home Resource Kits will be available for curbside pickup between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. every Friday, or until kits run out, at The Salvation Army Youth Education Town.
Donations have made it possible to provide supplies necessary to assemble kits for the Mansfield and Arlington community. The organization is currently in need of any kind of canned and dry goods.

"Thank you to everyone for partnering with us and for all your donations during this difficult time. Your support is providing hope and meeting the physical needs for many families in our community," said Lt. Timothy Israel, Corps Officer, The Salvation Army Arlington Mansfield Corps.

Donations can be dropped off at The Salvation Army Youth Education Town entrance, located at 712 W. Abram St., between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. any day of the week.
