The Salvation Army Eastern Michigan Division is working closely with state agencies to address the COVID-19 outbreak. We are consistently providing updates to the Federal Emergency Management Agency on our National Preparedness & Response status. Across the country, trained Salvation Army Emergency Response staff are on standby to assist if requested.
Ensuring the safety of those who depend on The Salvation Army's programs and services, along with the safety of staff and volunteers, is of utmost priority. We are closely tracking progress through the Center for Disease Control reporting and distributing prevention guidance to all staff, employees, volunteers, and program participants on proper hygiene and prevention.
The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit will distribute 6,000 food boxes that will help feed families in need impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. Volunteers will hand out prepackaged food boxes via a drive-thru distribution system at The Salvation Army's locations in Pontiac, Warren, Southfield, and two locations in Detroit.
The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan is dedicated to supporting the community during the COVID-19 outbreak.
