Food pantry in need of donations


BLUEFIELD (WVVA) – Though the need exists year-round, the summer months can be a tough time for food pantries.

The shelves at the Salvation Army in Bluefield are currently nearly bare and have been for a while, officials say.

The staff says they are in great need of foods to make meals for families.

"Contributions that are coming in to us and donations have been low," Capt. Jerry Lester said. "When they get low, of course, everything else is kind of put on hold until we can get (food) in, so we also need monetary donations real bad."

If you would like to donate or hold a canned food drive just contact the Salvation Army and they will be happy to pick up any donations you have.
