Salvation Army serves hundreds sheltering at Civic Center
People sheltering at the Civic Center in Albany didn't have to worry about getting a hot meal — or three — on Monday.
Volunteers with the Salvation Army prepared three hot meals for them, waking up early to start with breakfast, then putting together 400 sandwiches and soup for lunch.
They also made dinner in the morning to ensure everyone got three meals while their own volunteers were able to later get home safely.
"It's so important to make sure our neighbors have a good hot meal. Even if our shelters don't have any people, we want to make sure that there is a hot meal available for our neighbors," Corps Officer Lt. Rebecca Sullivan said.
Even despite a few power outages Monday, they continued to cook in the dark to get those meals ready.
