The Salvation Army of Davidson County received a $4,000 gift from the Food Lion Charitable Foundation just in time for the holiday season. The Salvation Army will use the gift to help people who are struggling to put food on the table.

“We are honored to be a partner with Food Lion to address the need of hunger in our community,” said Sgt. Les Ashby.

This generous gift will be used to feed people who are hungry. Folks can come to the Salvation Army’s social service offices in Lexington or Thomasville and receive food on the spot.

In addition, the Soup Kitchen in Lexington offers a hot meal from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Contributions to help with this effort may be sent to The Salvation Army at PO Box 770, Lexington, NC 27293.

Established in 2001, the Food Lion Charitable Foundation provides financial support for programs and organizations dedicated to feeding the hungry in the communities it serves. Since its inception, the foundation has awarded more than $9 million in grants.
