QUAD CITIES, USA: The Salvation Army’s homeless shelter for families – the Family Service Center – is in critical need of paper product donations.

“As we cut back costs at the end of summer, just as in any household, paper products are the first item to be rationed. But with 104 people residing here, and 65 are children, it’s extremely hard to do. The shelter has been at capacity all summer even when an apartment was being renovated and was unavailable,” says Salvation Army Social Service Director, Brandon Luke.

“Once a family is in the shelter, providing them with food and some sense of normalcy is our first priority. We are asking the community to please help out with the toilet paper.”

Any paper products: toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, baby wipes… or a monetary donation can be dropped off anytime at The Salvation Army, 301 W. 6th Street, Davenport, IA 52803. If making a monetary donation, indicate the funds are for “Operation TP.”
