The Salvation Army of Orlando and the clients that we serve are grateful for the continued financial support of Publix Super Markets Charities, who recently invested $20,000 in support of our food pantry and emergency services program. The financial support of Publix Super Markets Charities will be used to improve the quality of life for the disadvantaged individuals that we serve, and help us achieve and maintain the highest possible ability to function within our community. During our last fiscal year, over 45,000 people received emergency services through The Salvation Army of Orlando in order to remain housed, fed, clothed and to otherwise meet their basic needs, and we are wonderfully honored to have been the beneficiary of Publix Super Markets Charities generous philanthropy once more in order to continue to help those in need.
