LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - The Salvation Army has announced that while its thrift store and social services offices will be closed during the state-wide stay at home order their emergency food pantry will remain open 24 hours a day.

However, the Salvation Army says that while they currently have a three-week supply of food stored, they expect demand to increase during this time which will deplete their stores. As a result, the shelter is asking for donations from the community.

The shelter needs the following items:

  • Food
  • Hand soap
  • Baby soap
  • Laundry detergent
  • Bleach

The Salvation Army in Lake Charles is located at 3020 Legion St.

You can contact the Lake Charles branch officer for more information at 337-721-8068.
