LAS VEGAS (KSNV) -- The Salvation Army is not able to offer baby food, formula, diapers and other sanitary items to families because the shelves of baby food and baby care items are nearly empty.
The Salvation Army Family Services Office gives between 50 and 100 11 pounds of food boxes to families in need every weekday. Additionally, for families with infants and toddlers, they provide baby food, formula, diapers and other sanitary needs. Las Vegas Salvation Army
officials are not able to offer much to those families because the shelves of such items are nearly empty.
"Although we have some diapers, we have almost no baby food or formula, no wipes or diaper cream," said Darren Thames, the Director of Family Services Ministries for The Salvation Army. "We work with so many families that have infants and small children and it is so disappointing not to be able to be of more help to them when they need it most."
The Salvation Army is asking residents to consider adding some formula or baby food to the grocery cart and making a donation to The Salvation Army.
Simply drop items at Family Services, 1581 N. Main Street in Las Vegas. If it is more convenient to make a monetary gift, please do so by calling Salvation Army office to make a credit card donation at 702-870-4430 or Text "NevadaLVC" to 80888 to give $10 with your mobile phone (normal text charges may apply).
