The Salvation Army Adapting Programs to Meet the Needs of Community

Oklahoma City, OK – The Salvation Army continues its services in Central Oklahoma without interruption except where required to avoid congregating. In order to ensure social distancing and reduce spread of the COVID-19 virus, beginning on Monday, April 13th The Salvation Army is requesting individuals residing in Oklahoma County who need assistance to call its main line at 405-246-1100 to make an appointment.

“We are so thankful to support from the United Way of Central Oklahoma, Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and our local utility partners,” said Major Stephen Ellis, area commander. “We want to ensure our neighbors in need have the resources they require any day of the year…even more so now with the state of emergency we are all facing”.
