The last Thursday of the month, Doris visits The Salvation Army food pantry in Sharon, Pennsylvania. At the food pantry, Doris gets a half gallon of fresh milk and other foods to help her stretch her food dollars.
Major Michael Jung, M.B.A, Commanding Officer/Pastor of The Salvation Army in Sharon Pennsylvania knows that by providing milk and other nutritious foods, the pantry is making a difference in people’s lives. “We know that the challenges are out there but we know that because we give that milk, they can smile a little bit that day.”
Like most seniors, Doris struggles on a fixed income. “The way things keep going up, like taxes and groceries, it’s just hard for me to make ends meet.” The Salvation Army and their food pantries help seniors not have to make the difficult choice between paying other bills or buying food.
