Rescue Mission needs your help

September 28, 2005

Albany - The Salvation Army Social Services and lodge closed Friday, after the shelter Manager suddenly resigned. Now, Albany Rescue Mission is feeding twice as many people as normal, and receiving fewer donations because of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Brother Larry Hample says, "Now we're having to feed a double output of food and we're about to run out, so we really need some help ourselves."

The Rescue Mission desperately needs donations. If you can't donate money, clean out your pantry, the most urgent need is for nonperishable food items to feed the sudden influx of people. The Salvation Army plans to reopen within days.
