Protecting and Serving the community is what they do in Battle Creek.  

The Holiday season is here, and so many of us are blessed with family, friends, a warm bed and a full tummy. Unfortunately, that is not the case for many of our neighbors, times are hard at best. Thankfully through, the Battle Creek Fire Departments and Police department are teaming up with the Salvation Army to help families put food on the table for many families.

According to Fox 17...

The collection drive benefits the Salvation Army Battle Creek and runs through November 21st. Officials say they’re in urgent need of canned goods, like soup, fruit, and veggies, as well as other non-perishable foods.

Donations can be dropped off at the Battle Creek Police Department and all six Fire stations listed below,

  • Station 1 – 195 E. Michigan Ave. (*8-5pm)
  • Station 2 – 145 N. Washington Ave. (8 am-8 pm)
  • Station 3 – 222 Cliff St. (8 am-8 pm)
  • Station 4 – 8 S. 20th St. (8 am-8 pm)
  • Station 5 – 1170 W. Michigan Ave. (8 am-8 pm)
  • Station 6 – 2401 Capital Ave. SW (8 am-8 pm)
  • The Salvation Army-400 Capital Ave NE (9 am-3:45 pm, Mon-Fri)

So the next time you are shopping, if you can pick up an extra can of corn (or something) it would make the difference for a family in need.

Thank you Battle Creek Police and Fire Departments, you always make such a wonderful difference in peoples lives on a daily basis.
