The Salvation Army in Ocala, Florida, held a drive-through distribution designed to fill much more than physical needs.
To help ease the burden of grocery expenses, each car received a box of food with non-perishable items, fresh produce, baked goods, and frozen meat, but it didn’t stop there. They also received a hot takeaway meal for everyone in their household.
The Salvation Army recognizes that needs during a crisis go far beyond financial, so each person was also offered an activity bag for children in their family, a Bible (English or Spanish), and personal prayer from an emotional and spiritual care team member.
In total, more than 350 meals were provided to 175 cars that came through the distribution line.
