Feature: Salvation Army Begins Renovations


By Caroline Kelly

MONTGOMERY (WNCF) - The Salvation Army began renovations Monday. The 40-year-old facility will get a much needed face lift over the next few months.

We are all affected by the cold weather and a struggling economy, none more than the homeless.

The Salvation Army plans to do their part to make life a little easier and safer for Montgomery’s homeless population.

Mold, among other safety concerns, have forced the shelter to renovate.

Maj. Roy Harris believes the $100,000 project will raise more than just morale.

The new facility will hold 40 more beds for men, women, and children with a capacity of about 110.

Though residents of the shelter have been forced to find a bed elsewhere during the project, Harris believes the future is bright.

The Salvation Army is asking for the support from the surrounding community. For more information or to make a donation visit www.salvationarmy.com.
