The Plymouth Supportive Housing Program gets food deliveries from the Salvation Army to all 5 Plymouth housing sites on the first Thursday of every month. A lot of the residents depend on this monthly food delivery. They are in need of volunteers to assist with unloading the boxes of food from the Salvation Army truck and deliver them into the community rooms. Your volunteer service of just one hour a month will make a huge difference to help alleviate food insecurity for seniors living in the Plymouth housing sites.
