CLINTON — Freezers formerly stocked with meat are sitting empty this week at the Salvation Army’s food pantry.
And although demand has risen in the area for food assistance, the bare coolers are not a result of providing help to needy residents. Instead, the Salvation Army is left with a couple of fish filets after being the victim of a theft that resulted in more than $800 worth of meat being stolen, according to a Clinton Police Department report.
Salvation Army Lt. Jeanette Jensen said resources were getting low before this happened, and things are beginning to look desperate.
“This hurts,” Jensen said. “This is definitely a punch in the gut.” “Our goal is to help people who need it. We have had to ration recently and because (meat) was taken from us, a lot more people than the Salvation Army will suffer.”
Just writing about it wrenches my gut.
