On Friday morning the Salvation Army of Rome’s “Stock our Shelves” holiday food drive took place at the Salvation Army of Rome’s Headquarters and collected canned goods that will be used for distribution in the communities in Floyd, Polk, and Chattooga County.
WRGA News spoke more about this event with Salvation Army Captain Paula Blevins in the video above.
Captain Blevins also told us that volunteers will be needed in January to help sort through the various canned goods donations.
If you are interested in learning more or would like to sign up for volunteering with the Salvation Army, please call their local number at 706-291-4745.
Captain Blevins also clarified that cash and canned food donations are also accepted at the Rome Salvation Army headquarters all year long.
