Salvation Army still needs food donations

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Donations have picked up significantly for the Salvation Army's efforts to feed the homeless and needy this holiday season.  But the organization is still seeking the public's help. Thanksgiving feast coordinator Leinani Naholowaa says they're still in need of food to make 200 food bags that they distribute to families on Thanksgiving.

Specifically, they're looking for 5-lb. bags of rice. They're hoping residents will get into the spirit of giving, as she told KUAM News, "Any donations: canned foods, variety of meats, water, bottled water, juice drinks, rice, someone who's willing to take a frozen turkey or a ham and cook it and bring it to us on the day of thanksgiving at Chamorro Village. We need that."

The Salvation Army is in its 14th year of serving Guam's needy on Thanksgiving. Last year they served more than 1,100 people and expect to feed just as many during this year's Thanksgiving feast downtown.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday First Lady Joann Camacho and Quality Distributors will donate more than $30,000 worth of food to the Salvation Army.
