Compassionate Ministries, Salvation Army response to COVID-19

Thursday, March 19, 2020

As you know, the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has developed quickly and we want to assure you that Fort Scott Compassionate Ministries and The Salvation Army is committed to taking preventative measures to protect the safety of its employees, volunteers, and all the people we are privileged to serve every day. The well-being of all is our top priority.

Client assistance will be done over the phone as much as possible. When documentation is required we will utilize email and fax as much as possible. If hard copies are the only option, we will accept these documents with gloves and Lysol them before filing or following additional procedures.

“Even during the COVID 19 crisis The Salvation Army is here to help. Please call (620) 223-2212 to set up an appointment," Alan Shellack, director of Compassionate Ministries/Salvation Army.
