Shelves grow bare

The Superior Salvation Army is in need of donations of any kind. Their food shelves are almost bare.
“We really need food,” said Salvation Army Major Rosemary Matson. She says the summer months are usually the slowest when it comes to food and money donations.
“People start going on vacations and you know it just doesn’t happen like it does in the fall when they’re reminded that the Salvation Army is there and we need things. It just doesn’t happen in the summer. So, we get some donations but we don’t get very many.”
Matson says a food drive held just before Mother’s Day didn’t do enough.
“The big thing that we hurt in is food right now and it’s mostly like boxed foods like macaroni and cheese is a big thing that we could use and tuna and vegetables of all kinds.”
Donations can be dropped off at 916 Hughitt Ave., Superior.
