“On Friday, the Salvation Army in Staunton is hosting Summer Celebration, celebrating the end of summer and the start of school less than a month away.
They’re sending children back to school with school supplies and fresh haircuts for free, but this year, they’re giving away even more because of the COVID-19 pandemic. That includes food and baby supplies.
Staunton Salvation Army Officer, Lieutenant Johnathan Meredith, says they continue to help people with rent and utilities.
‘We’ve also been helping out a lot more people. As many as 300 percent more in the past several months than we have previously,’ said Meredith. ‘We’ve just seen a major increase in the number of people we’ve been able to help.'”
