    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    #GiveFromHomeDay taking place on April 21, 2020

     

    Little Rock, AR. (April 14, 2020) — The Salvation Army of Central Arkansas will be taking part in #GiveFromHomeDay on April 21, 2020. This national fundraising drive puts the power of giving into the hands of Americans who are anxious to help neighbors and strangers alike who struggle with the economic and health impacts of the new coronavirus (COVID-19).

    With people out of work, small businesses closed, schools shut down, and seniors more isolated than ever, the concept of helping our neighbors and communities has been brought to the forefront of social conversation.

    Sadly, at the same time, nonprofits like The Salvation Army of Central Arkansas have experienced a sudden and deep drop in funding as events have been canceled and the attention of loyal donors has been pulled away to other urgent personal concerns.

    But for the people who rely on The Salvation Army, their needs have only increased. Furthermore, the number of new people being served is growing every day. Regardless of the pandemic, has not gone away. Funding is urgently needed to continue:

    • Food Assistance
    • Utility Assistance
    • Shelter/Housing
    • School Supplies, etc.

    “Though this is an unprecedented situation for all of us, its impact will be greatest on the least of these,” said Capt. Jay Spalding, Central Arkansas Area Commander of The Salvation Army. “Thousands of Americans are already living paycheck to paycheck, and they will likely face incredible challenges from these uncertain times. Across Central Arkasnas, The Salvation Army is committed to serving those who need our help, and we are thankful for generous public support which will allow that to happen.”

    “Thanks for all your doing on the frontlines …. Keep up the excellent work, we’re in this together.”   Arkansas Foundation Executive

    The pandemic has made millions of Americans reliant on — and increasingly skilled at — the technologies that are connecting us. #GiveFromHomeDay on April 21 will focus attention on the act of giving and helping fellow Americans in the age of COVID-19.
