Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A charitable organization that helps people, now needs help itself.
The Salvation Army needs help stocking up on food.
The organization on Main Street in Las Vegas has served 200 families each day, nearly 1,000 each week, for months.
That's a 40-percent increase over previous months.
While the number of people to feed has increased, donations and funds have decreased.
The pantry is in need of high-protein foods such as peanut butter, canned chicken, tuna and other meats. Also important are baby food and formula.
This call for help falls in the month of September, which FEMA has coined as National Preparedness Month.
This serves as a reminder to stock up and be prepared for emergencies, and help the community be prepared by restocking the shelves at the Salvation Army.
You may bring your non-perishable food or cash donations to the Salvation Army Family Services on Main Street.
