    The Salvation Army Preparing to Help More Families during Coronavirus Restrictions
    ST. LOUIS, March 24, 2020 – The Salvation Army Midland Division is working closely with state agencies to address the COVID-19 pandemic. We are in regular communication with local emergency management agencies and managers in local communities throughout the Midland Division, which includes Missouri and Southern Illinois.  Trained Salvation Army Emergency Response staff remain committed to Doing The Most Good for our neighbors in need.  The Salvation Army, with its corps community centers, will remain open to provide pre-packed food, in bags or boxes, to minimize person-to-person contact.  Locations have transitioned to outdoor drive-through/pick-up or door pick-up for food boxes. Several locations that offer hot meal programs have transitioned to grab and go meals in pre-packaged containers that can be picked up at the door.   Food Services available at the following St. Charles County locations: 
    O’Fallon Corps Community Center: Food Pantry Monday, Thursday, and Friday, 10:00a - 1:45p and the second Wednesday of the month 5:30p - 7:15p.  
    St. Charles Corps Community Center: Food Pantry Tuesday – Thursday, 1:00p - 3:15p and Fridays, 1:00p - 2:45p. 
    The Salvation Army Shelter O’Fallon Family Shelter will remain fully operational. Safety plans have been established to meet the needs of each location. Arrangements have been made to separately house residents who are symptomatic and to implement social distancing where possible.

From developing a deeper understanding of the epidemic to identifying locations and population segments with the greatest need, The Salvation Army is pushing forward on all fronts and meets human needs without discrimination.
