Sallie's Table in need of Volunteers
Sallie's Table is The Salvation Army's weekend feeding program. It begin in 2003 as a mobile feeding program. The meals were served downtown. By the Spring of 2004, the need had increased to the point that it was no longer feasible to serve mobile meals. The decision was made to move the program to The Salvation Army's building at 800 N. Cliff Avenue . The program has remained in operation at this location for for the past 13 years. The Salvation Army serves a meal every Saturday and Sunday throughout the year. Meals are served from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Volunteers are needed to help serve meals. To volunteer, please contact Marcie Priestley at 605-338-6649 ext. 317 or email@example.com.
"All are welcome around Sallie's Table at The Salvation Army".
