Workers at Souls Harbor say they’ve seen more people coming in for food boxes. And the homeless shelter is at capacity. That’s sixty people, adding up to 120 meals a day alone. Workers are also seeing a drop in donations, saying families that normally give maybe dealing with the extra costs of back-to-school shopping.
“It’s difficult for people to give right now. So, we understand that but we sure need some help,” says Souls Harbor Interim Director Dianna Gurley.
They will take any food donations, but emphasize there’s a need for meat as well as canned goods. You can drop those off between nine and three Monday through Friday at 817 South Main Street.
