ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – As part of The Salvation Army’s efforts to help those in need it is organizing a neighborhood clean-up in Berkeley on Saturday, April 30, from 8-5 p.m.
Many areas of the city still have storm debris and other damage that needs to be cleared. Salvation Army volunteers will assist in those efforts to help clean affected areas.
Volunteers are to park at the John C. Murphy Health Center, 6065 Helen, 63134 and walk or a shuttle will take them to the Berkeley City Hall on 6140 N. Hanley. Volunteers must be 18 years or older.
It is recommended to wear comfortable work clothes with closed toe shoes and bring work gloves if available.
Along with clean-up efforts in Berkeley, The Salvation Army will continue mobile feedings in Moline Acres.
Currently, The Salvation Army is providing nearly 600 meals in that area. It will also provide food, courtesy of Bandana’s Bar-B-Q, for 1,000 Service International volunteers at Grace Church in Maryland Heights on 2695 Creve Coeur Mill Rd. at 12:30 p.m.
Next week the Salvation Army will provide assistance with groceries, clothing, furnishing, gasoline, personal care items, prescriptions, moving expenses, utilities, repairs and deductibles.
