TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Supplies are running low for the Tupelo Salvation Army.
Susan Gilbert with the Salvation Army (SA) says now that kids are out of school, supplies are running dry.
"This time of year, we have gotten kids, three meals a day and kids are like the rest of us, they get bored. It's hot outside. What they want to do is eat," she said.
She says the Tupelo SA is not the only one feeling the scarcity.
"We get food from the mid-South food bank out of Memphis, but they are feeling the crunch also," Gilbert said.
One major issue is the low amount of water. The water is given out to people at their cooling station.
Gilbert says the heat is taking its toll on the needy, and she feels obligated to help them out.
The SA in Tupelo is always accepting donations. Those wishing to donate can bring the items to the Salvation Army in Tupelo at 527 Carnation Street or can go to their website to donate.
