Due to Tropical Storm Beta, Christ’s Kitchen in Victoria is closed until the weather clears— and that’s because they serve outdoors.

The Salvation Army of Victoria’s sole purpose is to be a helping hand in the community. Because of that, they will be helping feed those in need whilst also helping the Red Cross ahead of Tropical Storm Beta.

To put it in perspective, Christ’s Kitchen alone serves 800 meals a day to those in need. In order to meet that high of a demand, they are in desperate need of volunteers to help out over the next few days as the storm rolls through the Crossroads.

Captain Kenny Jones, the commanding officer at The Salvation Army, says the weather will hinder their purpose. Due to the severity of the storm, low staffing will be the prominent issue.

If you are available to volunteer your time, you can reach Captain Kenny Jones at (915) 276-5664. If you are unable to volunteer, there are other ways to help.

The Salvation Army is also in desperate need of monetary donations in order to help the community, especially during this pandemic. Captain Kenny Jones says you can stop by the Salvation Army in-person to donate, or mail donations to P.O. Box 3045, Victoria TX 77903.

The Salvation Army of Victoria is located at 1302 N. Louis St., near the intersection of Laurent and E. Rio Grande St.
