Chick-fila-A Provides Support Through Bowls of Soup

More From This Author

The Salvation Army of Lufkin is always in need of support of the community, and Chick-fil-a has stepped up once again. Now, through the end of January, if you purchase a bowl of soup, Chick-fil-a on the loop will donate one bowl to those seeking a warm meal through The Salvation Army Community Kitchen.

The Salvation Army provides year-round practical assistance along with spiritual support to individuals and families right here in Lufkin. With the Christmas season over, The Salvation Army looks to the future on how they will meet the needs of those seeking assistance in Angelina County.

For almost a year now, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in heightened need in communities throughout Texas and the nation. Many people who have been able to pay their way prior to this outbreak are now facing extreme difficulties due to mandated business closings, furloughs, and job layoffs.

“We are so fortunate to live and serve in a such a generous and caring community. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, generous individuals and businesses, like Chick-fil-A, have come alongside The Salvation Army and made it possible for us to provide food, financial support and encouragement to those who have come to us for help,” said Captain Jenifer Phillips of The Salvation Army. “One of the earliest Salvation Army mottos was Soup, Soap, and Salvation. Please purchase a bowl of soup and help The Salvation Army provide both practical assistance, and hope, to those in need.”

The Salvation Army delivers a wide range of services to individuals and families in need and this is only possible because of the generous support of the community. The most effective way to help is to make a financial donation at www.salvationarmytexas.org/Lufkin/, by calling (936) 634-5132 or mailing a check to 412 S. 3rd St. Financial donations give The Salvation Army the most flexibility to purchase items that are most needed while supporting local businesses at this challenging time.
