Launched more than twenty years ago, the Grate Patrol mobile meals program has served approximately 1,314,000 meals to those who are homeless and in need in downtown Washington.
The Salvation Army is seeking $50,000 in urgent support for its Grate Patrol that brings an evening meal and fellowship 365 nights a year to people who are homeless and in need.
“Without the van we have no program. It’s the wheels of the program,” explained Theresa McKillop, The Salvation Army’s Program Manager for Emergency Assistance and Homeless Outreach Programs in the District of Columbia.
The Rotary Foundation of Washington, DC has given a generous gift of $20,000 towards the purchase of the $70,000 Ford van. The Salvation Army aims to raise the remaining funds to have a new van on the streets as quickly as possible.
