Kosciusko Salvation Army to limit the types of donations it receives

KOSCIUSKO COUNTY, Ind. -- Salvation army in Kosciusko County is limiting the type of donations it takes starting October 1.

The donation office in Kosciusko has recently refined their acceptable donation lists due to a shortage in staff and an overabundance of donations that are not usable.

“Our ARC and their stores are experiencing a shortage of staffing that has created this backlog. Many of the donations given are not usable and transportation and landfill costs have cut into the budget,” Said Administrator, Envoy Ken Locke.

Acceptable donations for the Warsaw Choice Pantry are canned goods, dry goods, meat, produce and hygiene items such as laundry soap, shampoo and diapers.

New items are requested to help people affected by local disasters such as socks, underwear, towels, kitchen and laundry items for the Angel of Hope program.

The only acceptable used items that will be accepted are books, puzzles, coats, shoes and boots.

The Salvation Army Office is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

For more information or to donate visit the Warsaw Salvation Army website.
