Salvation Army seeking people in need in Richmond County

ASHEBORO – If you are seeking emergency assistance for rent, mortgage, power and Piedmont gas, the Salvation Army may be able to help you.
The Salvation Army is located in Asheboro and provides services for Richmond, Montgomery and Randolph counties. The organization is supported by the United Way of Richmond County.
“The financial help is not a full resolution to someone’s problem,” said Corps Officer Major Luis Viera. “Individuals seeking help must first qualify and demonstrate how and why they need the money. We need to see why a person, or family, is in a financial bind. Was there an unexpected purchase that was out of the ordinary? Did the person’s income change? Why? How?”
Persons seeking assistance should go to the Richmond County Dept. of Social Service, at 125 Carolina Street, in Rockingham to pick up the necessary paperwork to apply.
For more information, contact the Salvation Army, in Asheboro, at 336-625-0551.
