After a number of months of inactivity and the resignation of a longtime representative, the Sulphur Springs Salvation Army Unit is being reorganized by the Texas Divisional Headquarters of the Salvation Army.
Salvation Army spokesperson Leslie Galban said Thursday that social services are temporarily on hold, but emphasized the reorganization will help the local unit to better meet the needs of the community.
The unit is expected to resume full operations in July.
“At this time, there is not a designated collection site for in-kind donations or authorized persons to collect cash donations on behalf of the Salvation Army,” Galban said. “All clothing and additional in-kind donations are being accepted at the Salvation Army in Greenville, or by calling 1-800-SA-TRUCK (1-800-728-7825) to schedule a pick-up.”
Galban also said that all money to be donated to the Salvation Army and to Salvation Army disaster relief efforts can be made securely online at www.SalvationArmy/Texas.org; by mail to The Salvation Army, P.O. Box 36607 Dallas, Texas 75235; or by phone to 1-800-SAL-ARMY.
Tina Darlin has been designated the interim contact person for the Sulphur Springs unit and may be contacted at 903-3358-2438.
Longtime Hopkins County Salvation Army representative Jo Marie Neal said that, after 35 years, she was retiring from her post.
“It's time,” she said. “I need to spend more time with my family.”
Neal said she had been considering retiring for a number of years.
“It's been joyful and sad to have seen the tragedies that some families have had to endure,” she said. “Let somebody younger do it now.”
