Atlanta, GA. With the closure of Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, perishable food items have been donated to The Salvation Army in Orlando. A second truck load of apples, oranges, potatoes, and other fresh produce is greatly assisting Salvation Army staff to help those affected by the Covid 19 outbreak, shelter residents and drop-in clients in need.
"We have been serving the populations most vulnerable to the COVID-19 pandemic, the homeless and senior citizens each day. This generous donation means we can serve so many more in need." says Captain Ken Chapman, Area Commander, Orlando.
